Treasure Island

Education


education
is the vessels of our future
and the beacon of our
hearts

where the
high way of its destiny is
lighted

lamp it and take, the oil
its free,
possess thy soul
the knowledge
await
for eternity breath

steadfastly loose decadence,
cloth the
vigor that makes
prestige
spiritual and morally stand
its thy honor

for wisdom comes in thy soul
it survive, be a
challenger
grasps the light that in
the flame its
inflame

the smell of the fire,
that
purify in thy heart.....Education
