Dueling Schooling Opinions

My education is absolutely pointless.
No student will ever say,
school has set me up for success.
That cannot be correct, but the truth is
our days would be better spent at home on our phones.
Believing that
A’s and B’s are actually succeeding
is a fluke. And we know
playing video games and scanning social media
is how we should spend our lives.
Studying, learning, and educating ourselves
is a horrific idea and waste of time.
Getting rid of school
may be challenging, but it is worth the effort.
Taking our education seriously
is a joke.
Dropping out
was a way to cope with the mental challenge.
“You should value the time you have in school.”
We hardly held this statement true.
Everything in life can be handed to you
is what we knew.
Education is vital.

The author's comments:

By creating my poem, I hope people understand the contrast between the two viewpoints on education I present. After reading, I expect the reader to realize the far superior attitude towards schooling, and I am hoping my poem may have a positive impact in someone's life.
