The Education Of Self - Poem by Matthew Holloway

The education of self
Educate the mind
The heart not to respond
Into a fruitless fight
Look to a learnt understanding
That it is better to stand
To remain silent
Instead of stepping into a fire
Where you become burnt
Consumed by the rage
That flickers in the night
In the eyes of the soul
Educate the mind
To forgive and to love
See the bigger picture
Unmask the world
And realise a happy ending
