Life Lesson Poem

I love to write. Hope this one speaks to those that read it! Let me know what you think. I am 54 years of age and live in South Carolina. Enjoy Brenda


What are the lessons that we so deeply need to learn? Are they lessons of making things better and bright? Are they lessons of change making things right?

Are they lessons that teach us today? Lessons of hope, are they honest and true? These lessons are what make me and you!

These lessons we learn are they happy or sad? Do we love and forgive or do we stay mad? The lessons in life are future events.

Lessons not handled make empty a plan, a lesson in life is like two birds in the hand. One lesson to love one lesson to hate. Which one to choose? Which one to make.

Lessons not easy so hard to discern, no better answer than the lesson well learned. Learn the lessons the people say. Lessons well learned are easy to replay.

When the lesson is learned you donít make the same plan. You know the one that was messed up, that bad deal of a hand.

Lessons in life are awesome at best because of the change that it makes in our hearts. They are lessons in life that never depart. Learn the lessons with all your heart.

  • Life itself is a lesson we either learn from or be sentenced to repeat the same experience in other to learn the said lesson the hard way. There are lessons that never depart, to wit the lesson gotten from the aftermath of a war started by kins and kiths that ended up being nowhere to be found at the end of the bloody exercise. There are lessons learnt from others experiences and mistakes that are not worth experiencing or repeating. There is always a lesson to be learnt from Brenda's golden plus four years that is worth sharing as what life has taught her to those who want to learn. The poem I must say reminds us of the various causes and effects of lessons accumulated in life. Some are personal, to be kept private or to oneself while others are for public consumption. There are lessons everywhere for everyone to learn from and grow wiser if he or she so wills. The poem itself depicts an imagery of lessons.
