We Never Stop Learning As Some

We never stop learning as some like to say
And from life we do learn something new every day
We will be learning from life until the day we die
I only quote fact and fact does never lie
And the more we do learn the more we realize
That we are not so clever this not a surprise
In our journeys through life many errors we make
But we learn as we live from our every mistake
As we follow the course of our life's destiny
And you are what you are this is all you can be
The happy with their lot in a minority
They are a rare breed those known as the carefree
In life as in all things the losers are many and the winners are few
Though to this you may say this to us is not new.

I think this poem is wonderful, especially the last lines. I know what it's like to be a shell (and it sux!)
You can feel the honesty, and this I love.
Wow...this was a very emotional poem. I really like this one too. Such strong feelings, but in a good way. Great poem
what did the love lack as a result of the sands of time? what was the token she gave back? The feeling and intensity is good.
This is a new theme; I like it. It's simple, but very sincere. My heart goes out to you.
