Life's Lesson! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Life's lesson, always changing not the same,
Sometimes hard, Sometimes easy,
Sometimes confusing, Sometimes daunting,
Theories of life's lessons,
Lighthouse in the sea shore,
It is always flicking and hiding,
Why do we learn through our own experience?
After many hours and years of research,
Theories are derived and approved.
Though it is wrong or right,
Why are we interested in learning,
Though our own experience?
The fire is hot; still want to touch it,
The volcanoes spewing, still want to dive into it,
Though the Arrival of tsunami is visible,
Not run opposite, but run towards it,
Why do we like to learn the life's lesson,
Through our own bad experience?

    This is the sad plight of man! Knowing that there is danger, he still runs into it and learns only through the hard way!
    The theme smartly dealt with!

    a thoughtful write. I always felt the most important lessons we ever learn are the one's we're unaware we're learning when we're learning them. Well penned. (Report) Reply
