Sonnet XXXV

If fowl fly, fish swim, and bees tend hives
Why should they be subject to equal plans
Which compromise their differences and make
Them equal creatures made for unlike lives?

The problem with our education now
Is that our schools have equal blueprints for
The youth who must go off to different lives.
Creative minds, suppressed and not allowed.

If people are so different, they say,
Then why are we put in generic moulds?
Each person has their different learning style;
We should but learn in different ways.

Uniqueness should be given room to grow
In order for our youth to find their roles.

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
