You don’t share your treasure with everybody,

Children who dream of you draw alphabets with sticks on mud,

Literacy is not only a luxury; it is a right and a responsibility ,

Because enlightenment is a small part of the things you impart!

You are my best friend, a wise advisor and the most patient teacher,

No, ignorance is not bliss, for you are the light at the end of a tunnel,

When hands curve around that round thin stick of wood mightier than a sword,

It changes the world because today a reader, tomorrow a leader

The author's comments:
I'm fascinated by what role education plays in our life. We don't understand the value of it because we have it. Ask the children who dream of education.
