My history class

Heard my history teacher had a fight

Said, she fought for women’s right

And moved out of her husband’s home

To live somewhere alone

And it reminded me of a question 

She once asked, I couldn’t answer

For which I was sent out of the class
On a rainy july morning, It so happened

Why did Vandals and Romans fought I was asked

First I woke up from slumber

Her question fell like thunder

Everyone was laughing  in the class

For the funny brat I was

Looked straight in her eyes and said

Because they never talked

Puzzled, she roared

I asked you the reason for the fight 

Tell me honestly, are you high

I said, if people could sit down and talk to each other 

There wouldn’t be any fights ever

Why do we even fight

Just because our ideologies doesnt align

Perfect world’s picture is different in our mind

Imagine hating a person about whom we don’t know

But hating him because his ideas are different from our own

The world would be better place 

If we give people a bit of space

To be different, 

To be true to themselves

I got Boos instead of applauses

And everyone laughed at how funny i was

She finally said

But why did romans and Vandals fought

If you dont know, you can leave the class

And I left the class

    Don’t worry your history teacher was just another book which is limited to it’s own knowledge.. You must try speaking that idea in philosophy class 👍

      That indeed is true, we have set so many boundaries for ourselves and for others. I sure will

      P.S. it’s really nice to see you Falak…..

    That’s the drawback of education systems….
    They want students to by heart the bookish words and put it on paper during exams…

      Exactly!!!!
      Not only education system, the barriers and boundaries are almost everywhere, and we are supposed to fall in line, crawl when we can fly, and see life passing by!!!
