. We learn

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

    if you fall off that horse, you must get back up, dust yourself off, cowgirl up (or in this case cowboy up :) and get back on. sometimes you learn what caused you to fall off and then you work to not make the same mistake. other times you dont know and learn by trial and error. either way we all learn one way or another dont we? 10. i could relate to this on every level.

    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

    When I read this poem I think some personal loss inspired to write this good poem...since salt comes out and the pain can be expressed....... a master work in simple words............

    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.
