Homeschooling,  Toyna

I am Taught

I was thinking I was normal

as normal as I could be

Living in my own world

Can’t decide who I am supposed to be

To hate or to love

To disgust or to like

To go under or above

Reaching for my goals, moving towards the sky

To dance or to fight

I was born thinking I was normal

As normal as I could be

Where people would be telling what is important for me

Whether to study or to play

To fail or to pass

To go or to stay

And to stay in which class

But I was wrong

I am not normal

I am lucky as lucky as I can be

Where people do not rule me

To study or to play

To fail or to pass

Or what to say

I am not ruled but I am taught

Thanks to these lovely parents that I got


Toyna wrote this poem in short 10-15 minutes. I loved it so much that I wanted her to put it on her blog. She didn’t and the paper kept floating around from one table to another. I didn’t want to lose it, so I decided to earn brownie points from my readers and put it on my blog.

Needless to say, my life is full or gratitude for the love and joy we experience every day.

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children. I bring all my past and current experiences together in the form of writing blogs. Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
