Walking away with a “Fail” in written English in school.
Spelling and grammar not up to scratch, what a fool!
Having to type on a computer with “Spell check”
I write my words down wrong, oh well, what the heck!
“You’ll need it to get a job” she shouted leaving class
I think I’ll pull up in my Audi and raise my glass!
My message to all kids pushed to the floor by…”normality”
do what your heart tells you to do, make that your formality!
Its not to say that disrespect is the dish of the day,
more that you need to stand tall and HAVE your say.
Lets not forget that many geniuses couldn’t read or write,
full throttle by them all and now they have won the scientific fight!
Do well in all and encourage others to do the same.
Embrace constructive criticism and take on some blame.
So what if you can’t add or take away numbers in maths,
just try your hardest and do it have some laughs.
