Education is a powerful weapon

Where to start

You open your eyes

I whisper to you

I show you all

The world has to offer


The bird that sings

His song for you

The sun rising in the morning

I introduce you to the world


We walk

We talk

I cherish your every day

Soon enough you will learn

To read

You will learn all the names

Of the ten thousand things


You will learn the language

Of the wild things

In the late afternoon

You will learn all

About sunsets


And you will learn

All the names of the stars

Which come out at night

You will talk with the moon


Your days will be filled

With learning

It will be your weapon

You will use to change the world
