It started with a uniform

It started with a uniform;
I was inspired by a uniform;
Then I was a little boy;
So many boys I saw;
All wearing charcoal grey trousers;
White shirts, red sweaters;
And brown sandals;
It was celebration day;
They all marched impeccably;
I was spellbound;
“I will go to that school,” I cried to myself;
In me burned ambition;
And from that day,
I worked towards that ambition;
And by the grace of God,
In 1965, my dream came true;
I went to one of the best schools
In my country;
And it all started with a uniform.
