Realization - Poem by Edgar Rendon Eslit

When will we ever learn?

We’ve been hearing words
loud, very loud and sometimes cursing
In a dead night haplessly intimidating
Humiliating, indeed, yet it’s on going
Will there be no end?
Shouldn’t they be feeling tired at least
It’s obviously difficult
For they made walls out of their voice
Distance out of fear
Pity, what a piety
How hard it is to be subsumed by anger
They should have tried listening to their hearts
Now that they’re into the brink
of falling out of love
For their hearts would make a good bridge
Connecting pointless gaps
Especially, since they made once
a promise to love.

Well, it’s true
If steel’s greatest enemy is its rust
For man, his lost pride!

    Well, yes when we ever learn if it is to late? if there is no time to realize the fact that we need to listen our heart and laseen our pride.It is true most of the man has high pride they are a great pretender even though they get hurt, or even they love somebody they will not show it sometimes because of the pride that will lead them to lost the woman they love. sometimes they learn and realize in the end that they are wrong and its too late to apologize.Its hard to control the anger but in the end you will realiza that sometimes we need to listen the beat of our heart, dont let the anger lost you.I love this poem because it talks about the realization on which we can learn.A nice poem, nice job sir thank you.
