By: Mickie Mae D. Ragasa

Has an Ithaca to learn
A desire; a yearn

However gazing upon books
Causes people to look

Education is a right
Yet opportunity never comes to sight

Born without enough privilege
Lives avoiding any scrimmage

Was kept complacent by stares that insists
he grew up an Icarus

A student he wished to be
Stayed a dream in his reality
