Our Greatest Teacher - Poem by Francis Duggan

We never stop learning in truth one can say
We learn as we live from life every day
Yet the more we does learn the more we realize
That we does know so little this not a surprise
Those who think they know everything are lucky indeed
Of any more knowledge they does not feel in need
In the famous old saying that ignorance is bliss
One does have to say the point they do miss
Life's lessons does cost us it does seem this way
For our every mistake some price we must pay
This is how it is and how it always will be
Our lessons from life are never free
Why life is our greatest teacher no need to explain
And that we learn as we live as a truism remain.
