Off Of Those Stages Rehearsed

One experienced has strong beliefs.
And normally away from classrooms,
Has their lessons been taught.

It is difficult to converse,
With someone who has lived...
Far away and off of those stages rehearsed.

When one has survived alone,
And has done it from the trenches.
And not sitting on park benches...
Sniffing floral arrangements,
Or wishing to be uplifted...
By a drifting of a Spring breeze.
It becomes difficult to share idealism...
With one who realistically lives.

One experienced has strong beliefs.
And normally away from classrooms,
Has their lessons been taught.

It is difficult to converse,
With someone who has lived...
Far away and off of those stages rehearsed.
There is a depth of meaning,
That has been involved in one's interpretation.
