A Little Light


For everything a reason
and a season under the sun;
every puzzle has its answer
that is not uniquely our own.

Nothing remains a mystery
in the light of life's experience,
or hurts like the awareness
we cannot live it over again.

Yet nothing is ever lost if we
pass such wisdom to one another;
no life lived in vain, that sheds
light on the path for a brother.

    ......................Yes, here lies the great problem, communication of wisdom. University can't, institutions can't, politicians, reformers, religious fathers / mothers can't until one realize the truth by ones own realization. The poem is in favor of a healthy journey through the life. At least wishes are appreciating. (Report) Reply

    This confirms the fact that the more vague a statement, the more it is read as if it had personal relevance. This
    sounds nice, but is, in fact, about nothing. (Report) Reply

    Very rightly said. Through out our lives, we experiment and experience to gain knowledge which we ought to share with others for common good. (Report) Reply

    beautiful Carolyn...just shine a little light and light the path for
    someone...if only everyone would live by this golden rule...the
    world would be a much better place :) (Report) Reply

    Wisdom is lost when not shared
    Lost when it is, but is brushed away
    Life is lived in vain if the light is ours
    And points neither us nor our brother
    To the one true light and wisdom above all (Report) Reply

    It's a wonderful poem! Thanks for sharing...Sharing only increases the wealth of wisdom and knowledge...I agree... (Report) Reply

    a beautiful write up. we need to help one another; shedding lights across other's path, that where we have fallen, they may scale freely. (Report) Reply

    What can I say that hasn't been said? In this one poem, you've told me all I need to know. I love it. Thanks
