What I've Learned

What I've Learned

A Poem by DriDri

I know rain drop formations, 
that raindrops don't fall from the sky, 
but usually from the shape of an oval. 

I know how to reach difficult places,  
to be squeezed into places I don't fit, 
to be broken into pieces, and loosely  
placed back together. 

I know yesterday, 
is the day before tomorrow,  
and tomorrow is an illusion 
that I may or may not see. 

I know that we all suffer, 
and the basis of all human suffering, 
is the monsterous reality of deception. 

I know that a line existing of hate,  
is often colored with hues of skin, 
and shades of people. 

I know that we all get lonely,  
and loneliness gets confused with longing, 
and longing can be confused with love. 

I know that you can be,  
more than one person at  
one time, anyone can be driven 
to insanity. 

I know that insanity sometimes, 
comes from coping, which is also  
another way of saying,  
"No one understands me" 

I know prayer is speaking 
things into existence, and  
vibration is how sound travels. 

I know that people sometimes  
say things they don't mean,  
I also know we don't always mean the 
things we say, but more often the way we say it,  
is more important. 

I know that I don't know much, 
outside of what I know. 
Outside of what I know, everything else 
is unknown.

I really like your style of writing. In your profile you say that you are a young poet. For being young, you have a grasp on the realities of life and what it takes to get through. You have what some would call an old soul, which I think makes a young person very special in ways most people would never understand. I say this because my youngest child (19) has an old soul, and he is unlike any other person, young or old, that I have ever known. I am a very lucky mom, and I would say yours is too.
