The Bridge Of Life - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

As we cross
the bridge of life
we see our glories
and we see our failures

We learn from each
as we find our way
to the true path of wisdom

    Too many bridges to cross
    Before wisdom on us finally dawns
    And all the time that we lost
    In between will in our old age haunt.....

    And so looking back and then forward gives you enlightenment on what your life is right now. This
    is a great poem. (Report) Reply

    Oh I think the smoke rises from the bridges we have crossed and there is no where to go but forward. (Report) Reply

    I have to disagree....the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom....that is why some of the most educated may not have it, and some people with long histories of failures may look behind, see their mistakes yet go forward and still repeat the same mistakes.....but sometimes the most simple person has great wisdom because he depends on God for light on his path.

    That's so true we learn from our past experiences!

    A fool doesnot even learn through experiences
    A knowledgeable persons learns from his past experiences and
    A wiseman learns through observation of the fellow men! (Report) Reply

    our glories tend to hold us back, our failures goad us to strive.

    great wisdom in the few words of your poem, Dave. (Report) Reply
