Treasure Island

Undoubted Student


When a pupil unlearn a reflection of misconception
is like a brown pointed thorn
A known mental harm definitive with impulsiveness
takes over
Yet nobody notice how sharp memories,
implies deep deception that fragrant roses

When a pupil relearn a reflection of accomplishment
is like a moiety of unlearn and relearn
A mental combination-unwraps delayed gratification

When a pupil learn a reflection of academics
is like a lily white porcelain teacup
A zestful mental rush- affinity for greater knowledge
runneth over
Yet nobody notice how fragile uncertainties corals,
inscribes deep achievement that shadows no blemishes

    very very cool. This poem is filled with imagery! The idea of reflecting on your learning so as to 're-learn' or 'unlearn' trials/tribulations and knowledge while at the same time using metaphors is awesome. I like the thought of delayed gratification from continued accomplishment. Great job 10; /10 (Report) Reply
