Life Lesson


Listen to all
Listen to none
But remember this thing
You are the one who realize

Learn everything
Learn nothing
But remember this thing
You are the one who understand

Go everywhere
Go nowhere
But remember this thing
You are the one who search

Believe the hard one
Believe the easy one
But remember this thing
You are the one who follow

Think the worst
Think the finest
But remember this thing
You are the one who decide

Read what’s written
Read what’s hidden
But remember this thing
You are the one who feel

See the dark
See the light
But remember this thing
You are the one who watch

Dream the ordinary
Dream the impossible
But remember this thing
You are the one who hope

Try the best
Try the rest
But remember this thing
You are the one who fight

Say it straight
Say it carefully
But remember this thing
You are the one who mean it

Love you care
Love you don’t
But remember this thing
You are the one who give

Live the truth
Live the lie
But remember this thing
You are the one who grow

Do what you desire
Do what’s been ordered
But remember this thing
You are the one who responsible

Touch it rough
Touch it smooth
But remember this thing
You are the one who keep

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
