The power laden mind of State is clad in fear.
The people of the State mean not to intimidate,
But to declare the opportune moment to rise
And seize education on the forefront.
Staying strong as they are able while walls appear to crumble
Like the cracked crust of a poor baker's baked bread
They declare that we must seize the day
And educate our children and our children's children
And the State cannot sit idly by as another uneducated man
Careens through streets searching for a generous donor
Like ravenous flocks of seagulls found
On the sandy beaches of our proud nation scavenge for sustenance.
This is our time to arm ourselves not with sharpened swords
But with minds sharpened with wit and knowledge.
Not with weapons in hand, but pens
This is our time to show the value of a book
Not with criticizing words but with encouraging ones.
This is our time to stand away from the violence and turmoil
And pursue a time of peace and prosperity
Not to segregate by race and religion
Btu to integrate by means of the capacity we can achieve.
This is our time.
