To have no regrets is the ideal life;
No painful memories to linger on,
No wrongful decisions to wish to amend,
No guilt due to one’s evil doings,
A life in complete accordance
And response to God’s will.
Since we are of the human kind,
We stumble and disobey his will in us.
If the lack of education
Is our future regret,
We have nobody but ourselves to blame.
Education is that accumulative knowledge
That we must have to build our character
And use it for our vocational advancement.
Schools make it possible for us to do so.
Hence, we can rid ourselves
Of that future regret.
“It’s back to school we go, we go.”
