A Professor - Poem by Heather Burns

once said to
me
Slow down
what's your
hurry
you have
a lifetime.

I thought
Stupid old
man
In retrospect
a wise man
with a gift of
knowledge.

    Whle young, when we are in mad hurry, we won't be able to enjoy such sound advice! But later as we grow up, we come to treasure such sagacity, earned through years of experience in life! Nice write! (Report) Reply

    Good advice, we are all on a journey to somewhere, some arrive early some arrive late but we all get there in the end. (Report) Reply

    It does not matter if we arrive early or quite for some reason late.
    If we are destination bound it matters most that we arrive. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes we tend to ignore sane advice from our teachers/elders thinking ourselves to be more wiser. However to our chagrins later in life we find they were right and we were wrong. Short poem with a profound message. (Report) Reply
