Lessons - Poem by Dee Corpolongo

I'm trying my best to understand
What this life is all about
All the trials and the tribulations
make you wanna scream and shout.


All the joys and all the sorrows
can make you laugh and cry
Wondering if it was all worth it
as the years just roll on by.

You finally come to the realization
it's all lessons we must learn
there are bridges we must cross
while some are best to burn.

We meet so many people
some bring love and some a game
but it seems that all who enter
our lives are never really the same.

So hopefully, we all do our best
and live our lives and know
we all go through so many lessons
it's apart of just how we grow.
