Don't you remember when you were young?
When the world seemed so bright.
The stars shined ever so bright every night.
You were happy to just play all day,
Never knew you were wasting your life away.
You were a child,
and to you the future was so bright.
You couldn't wait to grow up and make a difference,
to show the world who you were.
But then you grew up.
You had to go to school.
Your wild spirit was labeled as a mental defect.
You were told to shut up and sit down.
They didn't care what you stood for,
because you were a child,
and children don't know what they're talking about, right?
Through the years you were told you were wrong so many times,
you believed it yourself.
You believed that you were stupid,
that you needed to work harder and pay better attention.
But that didn't work did it?
So you were still labeled.
years passed and the labels grew,
and worst of all,
You were labeled for being who you were.
Your wild spirit was crushed to the point where you just shut down.
You didn't care anymore.
Everyday was the same;
you got to school,
did your work and went home.
By this time you were a drone.
You could have shined!
You could have shown the world who you really were,
but instead you didn't,
instead you were told that you must be wrong.
You're not like the others,
so you can't be right.
Your wild spirit was crushed;
you became a shell of yourself.
Don't you remember when you were a child,
and you could run free,
you could actually dream!
But then you went to school,
and those dreams were crushed.
You could have been something amazing.
But you weren't.
Because when it all boils down to it,
according to our education system;
were all just numbers labeled with our mental problems.
The saddest thing about it
is that there's not much we can do about it.
