What It Means To Me

Location

Education.

To me-

 Education is opportunity.

Education is a chance to better myself, to better my life.

Education is money.

To my parents-

Education was a joke.

Education was too expensive, it wasn’t worth it.

Education is now a regret.

To some-

Education is denied.

Education is unheard of, only obtained in a dream.

Education is unknown.

To me-

Education is the smell of fresh pencils.

Education is the sounds of textbook pages flapping.

Education is turning in my essay with a proud smile.

Education is an escape.

Education is essential.

Education is only the beginning.
