Arent You Glad You Stayed In School
Do you recall being in school?
Learning many lessons;
obeying all of the rules;
absorbing each lecture and each page
of your textbook;
adding to your storehouse of wisdom.
If you stayed and finished school, you were wise;
It always pays to stay in school.
As you build your own life’s book,
You’ll learn many life lessons.
Every turn of your life’s next page;
must comply with some sort of rule.
People live and create hoards of rules;
Living by them can make one wise.
Turn carefully the pages,
while you’re still in school;
and you can avoid some hard lessons
which, are not in your textbooks.
If your life is a tightly closed book,
you live by a personal rule;
you may get frustrated with your lessons.
Sharing with others can make you wise;
Not all education is gleaned in school;
Education has many unconventional pages.
Every time you turn a page,
in any kind of book;
you’ll learn things, in lifetimes school;
including the golden rule.
Living this rule is quite wise;
it’s the kindest lesson in life.
Pay close attention to your lessons
and those on other people’s pages.
Everywhere you’ll locate wisdom;
Someday you may write it in your own book.
Every king or queen that ever ruled,
Started out, being schooled.
Wisdom comes from a lifetime of learning lessons.
Stay in school till it’s time to turn another of life’s pages.
Study your books; live by the rules for success.
