"The important thing is not to stop questioning." ~Einstein

When I think of my school,
while sitting on a stool,
I reflect that it wasn't very cool,
Why everyone was fool,
enough to go to school?

But the thought comes to mind,
And untimately I find,
that school is the place, I know,
where one starts to grow,
and one's life-stream starts to flow.

Why am I being so poetic,
with a mind scientific,
in my opinion, very scientific?
How wonderful is brain!
But it too can stain.

The brain can be stained,
if it isn't, to work, trained,
like a machine which belongs,
to someone, who doesn't use it for long.
So the mental disease will prolong.

Therefore, we go to school,
to change our minds from those of fools,
into minds of creative guys,
and gals; this we cannot buy,
even after thousands of try!

This is my very first poetical composition.

Though I liked this better than the other ultra-rhymey poem, I still think u need to vary word choice if u rhyme every line with the same sound....but anyways this one I actually loved the idea, it was very well thought out!

I find that one interesting. One I might read again, and thoroughly figure out the meaning. I love poems like this.. where you dig deeper the more you read it.

When it seems like there’s no one left to run to in this empty world you can come to me I’ll be your shooting star. You can tell me your dreams I can’t promise to make them come true, but I’ll be there to pick up the pieces of your broken heart if your dreams happen to fall through…Unknown
