A Teaching Of Lessons - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A teaching of lessons,
By one limited in life experiences...
Become less effective,
When those lessons are subjective...
To a belief that a student who is picked,
Is unaware of the objective that is wished...
By one unqualified and incompetent,
And also exposes adolecent motives...
That prove such lessons taught,
Will not result with an outcome wanted wished.

And in this situation,
It is best one with wishes to teach...
Just sit and listen instead of assume,
A student picked has not yet experienced...
A life to live overcoming obstacles,
Those who placed themselves in positions...
To teach lessons believed one who is picked needs,
Are not themselves embarrassed to get...
When they are left to receive,
Lessons they will never forget or make attempts...
To teach those who have lived to experience, again.

'What's the matter?
Why the tears?
I thought you were going to teach somebody a lesson? '

~I thought so too.
But who I met was not who I suspected.~

'Who did you suspect,
Was in need of a lesson you would teach to leave? '

~Someone I was told to believe a fool.~

'Well, apparently...
You were left with your beliefs corrected.
And with a mind now enlightened.'
