By: Ernest G.Smith, Jr. - (April 12 2006)

Education is my name, yes, education is my beneficial name to humanity

Dignity I give to those who diligently strive and obtain me
Utilize me well and you shall be an idol and delight to millions in this crowded world

Cease not O ye Children of Mama Liberia to pursue me as long as you live because

Authority and prestige have I given to those who cleave unto me with all their might

Thousands are miserable only because they spurned and ridiculed me …………….

Indeed many were disappointed and suffered shock last October because of me

Of course, I’d rule the world with enough prudence, humility and respect for life

Nations and men become great with me as their cornerstone.

Yes! Education is my unique name, strive and embrace me for am too worthy a cause to fight; O education is my name.


The above poem is dedicated to all Liberian refugee students and prospective students striving to acquire sound education in the diaspora against all odds! Compos mentis!
