Knowledge is a mentor who charges you no fees,
a life companion offering open doors of opportunities
in a global world where brevity of life compels a person
to acquaint themselves with knowledge and learn as
much as possible.
Knowledge is power. It gushes from the streams of
academia, giving us the power to speak our minds,
keeping us more informed- allowing us to be
who we truly are.
I am addicted to Knowledge.
Deep into my soul writhes a beast with an insatiable
desire for knowledge.
It summons my attention by infesting my thoughts.
Wriggles into my conscience beckoning my peculiar
Enlightening me, broadening my mind as i inhale
a whirlwind of knowledge and exhale understanding.
My quest for knowledge stabs my intellect with
sharp slivers of introspection.
Sullied recollections of long faded days spent curled
up in blissful ignorance hit me like hot flashes as i
desperately clinged to distorted facts, marinated
theories, assumptions and tattered remnants of
truth while smoking ignorance’s shisha.
Ignorance is a mental disability that keeps the light
of knowledge at a distance; entrapping your existence
as you stare into a dark chasm and become completely
Books and other media of information are the treasure
troves of knowledge keeping the past account of all
generations; providing an educative platform for learning
even though some sources of information may cause
perturbation due to their profundity.
See, family can give you a clue but books will give you
the big debut and send you through a thought provoking
journey that is long overdue.
So, educate yourself. Read some books, invest time for
personal research and don’t rely solely on the straining
admonitions of elders and tabloids to assuage your curiosity.
Feed your mind with various forms of knowledge, ameliorate
your vocabulary and edify yourself greatly as a scholar,
knowledgeable person; informed and enlightened.
Embrace knowledge in all its forms and use it as a yardstick
to better yourself and others.
Don’t wear it as a shroud of righteousness because knowledge
is rootless without sincerity and as long as we live, we keep
learning. You can’t know everything.
If you think Education is expensive, try Ignorance.
