For My Years

In wisdom and knowledge for my years i have little to show
And so little about life i can claim to know
Though we never stop learning as some like to say
And life has new lessons for us every day
Age does not always bring wisdom i have come to realize
As i do know a few young people who for their years are quite wise
And i know some who are ageing that wisdom has passed by
That wisdom comes with age to them does not apply
We learn from our mistakes as we are often told
But as for me i still make mistakes though i am getting old
And though some more than others have in them the power to discern
In life every day for us a new lesson to learn
But perhaps for to learn i must be rather slow
Since for my years in knowledge and wisdom i have little to show.
