A poem about education, life, and the future of our children - a prose poem.
Amongst the most dismal and ungodly truths
Known is the timelessly bleak concept
Of tragedy which darkens
Our inimitable, and at times,
Disheartening world;
Fate often takes a painful
And gut-wrenching descent
Into chaos which eventually leads
To appropriate countermeasures,
Making righteous and sound legal claims,
Or seeking worthwhile, professional guidance and counseling
To restore life to its treasured normalcy...

But whether or not we respect
These often-revered values or hold dear
Our most ideal and comparable worth
Shall depend on our own futures,
Our children's futures,
And our children's offsprings' futures;
For education offers a distinct and infinite realm
Of challenges and rewards
For a lifetime of dutiful and talented teaching,
Aimed at that clamor of energetic,
Gifted, and euphoric children
Gracing our planet with their
Glorious visions, intuitive insights,
And infectious goals...
