An Education


An Education is

The only tool

That really makes us

Better than beasts.


For dolphins have better brains,

And they, dogs and cats,

And monkeys maybe trained,

Yet not educated.


An Education is not

Learning how to earn.

Its how to cultivate your mind,

To be a good human being.

Its not just learning how to exist,

But how to ‘live’ a life.


An Education is not only

In schools and colleges.

It’s in the endless lessons

Of life itself.


Educate yourself.

It’s the legacy you inherited

When you were born.

Its the only real legacy

Of Mankind.
