No Short Cuts In Life - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The road to success
Is wide and tarred
With big road signs
And a band of teachers
Heavily armed and ready

You reap what you sow
Is the mantle for today
Tomorrow and forever

Students of today
With their busy schedule
And their know-it-all mentality
Are perpetually missing the road
Dismissing the road signs
Ignoring the teachers
Chasing their facebook friends
And dodging their lessons
Unperturbed by their lack of discipline

Graduates roam the streets
With fancy certificates
And sober faces
Unashamed by their job seeking mentality
Unaware of their rich mental faculty
Blinded by their shiny degrees
And polished English accents
Unable to be counsel themselves
And gang together
Into powerhouses of knowledge
And mastermind groups
With their vast resources (education)
Deep mines of knowledge
And their complex structured brains
To Create and innovate new ideas
Build and harness brilliant business concepts
Always reminded that there is no shot cuts in life
