School is more than an institution,
it is more than class rooms-
rows of chairs;
more than exams and stress.
It is a home;
it is a memory to be cherished.
It is more than where we learn to read and write,
it is where we learn to laugh and smile,
Where friendships are forged for a lifetime,
where we decide our path for the future.
Where children for whom ‘letters’ are nightmares,
learn to weave them into beautiful stories.
Where stuttering infants,
become eloquent speakers.
Where young minds are nurtured,
given pathways they can follow-
or pave their own.
Mostly where we all blossom into learned individuals,
as we set out to conquer the world.
