Listen To Learn - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The only advice I can give to anyone,
Is not to seek to solicit it.
Or feel a stumbling to fall,
Is not a progressive move.
If a repeating doesn't teach...
A lesson kept to learn,
Others will be there willing to share...
Complaints about life and how it's unfair!

The only advice I can give to anyone,
Is not to seek to solicit it.
Too many are willing to give their opinion.
And from them a wish to deposit,
Complaints about life and how it's unfair!
With the hope the advice they share,
Keeps someone aware of their need...
To have the spreading of more gloom.
Listen to learn with a doing to stay aware!
