Lessons

By Steve, 65. Aldinga, SA

lessons learnt
only slightly burnt
so much to learn
so little time
growth sometimes a bitter pill
as we struggle up an unknown hill
tufts of grass,
trees with embedded roots
can help us on our way
every hill is different
for every child of mother earth
survival is our instinct
it rarely lets us down and
when you’ve reached your plateau
it is only then you’ll understand
that the hill you climbed
was yours alone, but
alone you never were
