. We Learn - Poem by Eyan Desir

When love turns to salt
Minds are defeated
When eyes begin to cry
Hearts get broken
When joy spits sorrow
When souls have gone
When a friend is lost
After tears, we learn

    We learn troughout our lives but still die as fools... This is a great poem. Short & straight to the point. Sometimes you only need a few words to express your feelings.10 from me (Report) Reply

    Your poem contains a universal truth, but it's not clear to me only tear gives a proper learning.From my point of view sorrow can not prevail long and so we want to get rid of it.You know on the way of our life journey we lost a lot of near and dear ones, but like a new morning a new one comes and occupy the lost one-it's the rule of nature.your poem remembers me Thomas Hardy's pessimistic attitude.
