it is the greatest glory
yet the strongest of the wretched
to be taught is once
to know is twice
to accept is once again
to carry out through wisdom is
what the birth was meant for
but oh how we fail to take action
we find more reason not to
than reason's purpose is
you can be the wisest of men
and know nothing
and know nothing
and be the richest of all
learn the balance
or learn the chaos
be caught in between
or live 4....
Old too soon, smart too late....-anonymous

:bump: im not sure what it all means, but i like that ambiguity. and it was well written, nice structure. a pleasure to read. i especially liked the verse "to be taught is once, to know is twice, to accept is once again" -- so point on and succinctly phrased.

A little ambiguity allows many interpretations. There are many well educated idiots and a few wise fools
