We are all enrolled in the school of life
 some learn quick, others attract strife
 Sadly violence and chauvinism run rife
 often so thick you could cut it with a knife

What lessons have you learnt so far?
 Realised you will never be a big star
 Keen to drive that new flashy car
 Are your expectations up to par?

We came to this school with nought
 get caught up in games and fraught,
 sit still and listen to your heart to sort
 that you have learnt the lessons taught

Be aware that all too soon we will leave
 Know deeply in your heart what you believe
 for it’s only ourselves that we deceive
 Be very careful of all that you weave!
