My DownfallA Poem by Barbara Walker
Numerous lessons I have learned;
many were extremely hard-earned,
but, there is irony in all of this-
you could compare it to a first kiss.
What is it, I have found?
Those same circumstances don't come around.
What can I do with this experience, amassed?
What can I do with this wisdom, so vast?
Why, I could share it with the younger set.
They would appreciate it, I bet!
However, my memory was my downfall-
I'd forgotten that teenagers know it all!
