Life - Poem by Sophia Borger

I have learned ... I must keep learning.
About other people
their personalities and motives.
About myself: Examine my motives...
Of words and thoughts.
Am I gaining bits of insights,
Or am I judging with criticism?
Even tho' these things may not become words,
If only in my thoughts ... I must deal with all of these.
Is this being prepared for my next phase of life,
Or is this a daily battle I must fight?
I can not go through life without thinking,
I must measure my steps as I go.
I cannot prevent every pit fall...
Only if I am willing to keep learning..
With much prayer...
God will help me through them all!
