What should I do
Every mistake is accompanied by the whip.
No doubt,my tears I should keep.
Since kindergarten,I am told that I should succeed.
And to all their advices,I should pay heed.
I am told that I should achieve all my goals.
And say yes to all the no's.
I go to primary school.
Not even knowing why, but what should I do?
School to me is like a playing park.
But quite indelible in my mind it leaves a mark.
Words still a jumble,numbers a blur.
But I really don't care.
Come Grade 4!
I now know.
I start being serious with education.
Strength and determination,I all get it from consternation.
I hearken to what my parents say.
That while the sun is shining,I should make hay.
Come secondary,I am now grown up.
My mind is also now sharp!
I can now do difficult mathematical operations.
I listen with rapt attention to what the teacher mentions.
After secondary,I go to university.
My future is still lit.
I study and finish all my courses.
After this,I am ready to now start.
But I find that life is not easy to crack just like a hard nut.
I am jobless.
Perhaps now hopeless.
I find that education is not really the key to be successful.
But rather a good mind makes one to be gleeful.
Not only this but a good capital!
But what should I do now?
Where do I find it?
I don't even have money for meat.
This is my question,what should I do?
I repeat,what should I do?
