The Classroom of Experience

Your eyes, keep them as ready and sharp as can be
Every minute of the time
Prepared to observe the Teacher's moves
And discover the all important hidden secrets
That hold keys to the doors abounding opportunities
In this classroom of experience
Where learning is as borderless as the infinite horizon

The Irony of Life

Life ruthlessly strikes me down
With her uncompromising heavy blows
Drawing pained tears with furious whips
Willing me to stand up stronger
Back on my feet taller than ever
Feeling as victorious as blissful 
And thanking life with joyful tears

Corruption Must Fall

Like soil erosion that regrettably washes away
The priceless nutrients down the wasteful slopes
And robs the land its precious gift of fertility
The unfortunate crops have to endure malnutrition
Their growth is as counterfeit as it is stunted
And the grower's reward is a very paltry harvest
Such is corruption when allowed to reign supreme
And wreck havoc on the noble progressive policy
Pushing competent skills and priceless resources
Down the drain, and rendering development
A futile effort that only exists on busy tongues
