Field of Vision
Education rules my mind.
Images of words and numbers congregate
in a myriad of thoughts and processes, weaving
together a interconnected tapestry of hope, success
and motivation. It pulls my heart towards a brighter path,
pushes me to evaluate my place in society
and instills values, language and skills into the core
of my developing psyche. When I open a book,
a storm of information is released, it jumps
to the forefront of my imagination, and defines my perspective and identity.
It drives me to learn, to see more, to do more and to give
back to family, friends and the community who have supported me.
My acquisition of knowledge has taught me the meaning of intelligence
and navigated me through the rocky terrain of naivety and ignorance,
while academics, dedication, and challenges have formed the basis of my mentality.
Time may tell the future, but I chose to steer my own path
by grasping the initiative like precious gold among a sea of cooper ore.
I know there is no question that I will succeed and the one
thing that has guided me this far has always been clear:
education rules my mind.
