A Life Lesson Poem by Vanessa Hughes

A Life Lesson

Rating: 4.4


A lesson learned
Is a lesson worth
All the gold
Upon this earth

A lesson learned
Without the pleasure
Of maybe what
Would be my treasure

Is a lesson
I've become to rue
Not finding out
If you were true

At worst
I would have known the score
Instead of wondering
For evermore

I accept I'll probably
Never know
With a lesson learned
I gotta let go

Hi. I know it is good to learn but there's a bitter fact. Well, when we were in elementary school, we used to write essays with different topics. One famous topic was Which one's better: Knowledge or Wealth? As students we always praised knowledge and science and gave it the superiority. But now, I see that there are some illiterate factory owners have so many.M.A. engineers, ... who bow down to them to work for them. So wealth is superior to knowledge for those who live in this world. Yet, I am a little bot different from others (Mybe because I'm stupid or something like that) . I think I want to study more and more. I like reading and understanding new things. This is very strange. (Everybody in my age goes and searches for job, ... Yet I want to continue my studies and even study more and more after getting Ph.D after so many years!) Anyway, I read your poem and sorry for a long comment. Thanks for sharing.

We all learn from decisions we do or do not make, we just have to use our best judgements. There are lessons learned everyday. Very nicely done.
