From Teacher to Student

A Poem by J.A.Bentley

A quick poem that come to mind. Lessons tried and failed, only to learn again.

Young one,
I've read what you said
and saw what you did
and bluntly,
I was greatly impressed,
not that you were right
you were wrong)
but gladly I saw
that you were teachable
you yearned to know
believe me you
it showed
So, Young one,
I'll teach you
you can't move mountains yet,
it's true,
(don't believe that
which others tell you)
but in time and by faith
mountains you'll move.
So follow me,
pick yourself up
Let's continue.
