Education

I have been taught about planets
Celestial bodies and comets.
I have been taught about how
It all began with a big bang!

I have learnt of people near and far,
Of lands strange and awesome.
I have learnt how the mind works,
And how intricate the body is!

Yet, how inadequate!
How very ignorant I feel!
How helpless!
How I clutch at straws!

I have embarked on a journey,
With no compass, no map;
I don’t know the terrain,
Have no shoes on my feet!

Algebra and thermodynamics,
Phonetics and linguistics,
Rhetoric and philosophy,
Never told me how to live!

So unprepared,
Untaught, ignorant,
Uneducated!
In the art and science of life.
