As A Student Of Life

Not a part of my existence,
Did I practice first or rehearse.
And not a lesson to me taught,
Came to me to quench a thirst.
As a student of life,
I've learned to live through the worse.
No experience came to me,
With a stopping I could reverse.

To understand and comprehend,
Without a making of mistakes...
Is impossible to achieve with answers revealed.
And yet there are those prepared to condemn,
Others to expose from taken self righteous positions.
As a condition to find fault and accuse,
The ones perceived deserving to be abused.

Not a part of my existence,
Did I practice first or rehearse.
And not a lesson to me taught,
Came to me to quench a thirst.
As a student of life,
I've learned to live through the worse.
No experience came to me,
With a stopping I could reverse.

And yet there are those prepared to condemn,
Without experiencing life.
To walk on paths,
With no paving of them that begins.
