Everlasting Lesson Poem by Kelvin Owusu

Everlasting Lesson

Rating: 5.0


Thirteen years of school
A little more for further studies
General, social, history lessons
Life and street rules
Vice versa, slips, trips many falls
Start or end with the blues
Plenty songs sang relating on the journey

Old school and new school
Many different battles and scars
Same title: The fight.
Plenty obstacles, different bridge destinations
A journey, same struggle: The climb.
Every individual owns claim to their own stories
Same topic: Life.

From birth ‘til death
A constant lesson
Repercussion, obstacles, compassion
Beginning to end, the journey and destination
A grim awakening

Struggles are our teachers
Life's the lesson
We're the students
The mind is the question to
our everlasting lesson
