On this fateful day
The youth of yesteryear
Took to the streets with those bruised feet
Each one passionate about education
They declared war on a system that limited their potential
Knowing well that the sky is just the beginning
 
For an eagle can only fly as far as its wings allow it
So why should a child be limited to only one language
When the youth filled mind has no boundary
It can conquer any challenge, if equipped with the right tools
 
So the youth of yesteryear
Took to the streets with those bruised feet
Each one passionate about education
They proclaimed freedom of information
Knowing well that knowledge is power
 
For a future in such a despondent world is only accessible to the prudent
So why should a child’s mind be left in shackles?
When the tools of liberty are found in the classrooms
 
On that fateful day
The youth of yesteryear
Took to the streets with those bruised feet
They took it upon themselves
To fight for our education
So the youth of today could learn
 
So the youth of yesteryear
Took to the streets with those bruised feet
Each one passionate about education
They fought so I could learn,
Died in ignorance so I could live in understanding
So with the knowledge I have acquired; I honour them today
For their scattered bodies on that fateful day,
Paved my future

What do you think?
