Upgrade Our Future


we value the public school system

cause it’s the primary bud for our children

Don’t forget they are the future

our lives are similar to the ocean


you are the waves that already reach the shore

now is the time to reach back


what affects one group affects us all

blink of an eye it’ll be too late

we want education

not suspension


Your said there’s no money for education

but face the fact!

building prisons?

sentencing children

based on third grade test scores!


we as students attending

public schools

asking for a second chance  

and for your investments


you invest in business

when not making profits

why not upgrade our future too

like I said before it is yours also


Dehydrating our roots

setting us for failure

small population investment

won’t change your fate

It’s an ecosystem
