Empty, fleeting, fickle words
Do this assignment, read these pages
How many words do you speak in a day?
How many of them actually mean something?
God spoke and breathed life
The teacher spoke and breathed….
Are you doing in my life?
Life is more than books and study
Teach me more than books and study!
You want me to figure out a list of math problems
While I can’t even figure out my list of life problems
Teach me to make good financial decisions
Teach me how to deal with my dad’s death
The importance of investing in people
And what truly makes us valuable
Teach us the truth that lies outside the true or false
If you think those tests and quizzes leave that classroom you are sadly mistaken
But truth will go with us we ever we go
And truth is what we are all searching for.
