This poem was written by James Rogers, a student in our Adult Education Program and a member of the SHARE project.


I can’t remember much as an infant.

But time when by like in an instant.

Going to school, I got good grades.

But somehow dropping out is the mistake I made.

Playing hooky on the basketball court,

It seemed like I will make it in that sport.

Jobs came, I had my share.

However, Education was missing, and I really cared!

So here comes TASK, I get another chance.

It might be the last time I’ve got to enhance.
