Flat White.


You go and you learn,

see the world and see inside the world.

You go and you explore,

tirelessly.

You go out like it's a school day,

but the thing is.

An education is nothing without good teachers.

A road leads nowhere if not for signals.

A window is treacherous without a "don't lean over" sign.

You need your warnings,

your chalk and board,

your educators.

You need to trust others

to be that for you.

And then maybe become the same

for them.
