He Who Opens a School Door, Closes a Prison
Philip Claude Andermann
Like Gandhi, transform the prison [of destiny]
into a palace of the heart.
Educate ourselves to be able to read
the history books our children and theirs will write about us,
how we nourished and educated them.
Transcend Plato's dark Cave of Ignorance
by offering the entire world INTO our open heart,
for the sake of our children.
Gandhi said that we carry our own cave with us.
Well, we can carry the entire world of the future
on our shoulders with love
if we share the humanist wisdom knowledge has given us.
Open the door to the sun!
