Life Taught Me


Yes life taught me to love
Yes life taught me to be hateful
Yes life taught me to be negative
Yes life taught me to be grateful

Yes life brought me great pain
Yes life brought me pleasure
Yes life brought me rain
Yes life brought me joy that could not be measured

Yes life gave me friends
Yes life gave me enemies
Yes life gave me good times
Yes life gave me memories

Yes life gave me a chance to love
Yes life gave me butterflies
Yes life made me understand that
Yes life is life because all I was fed was lies

Yes life took the good away
Yes life gave me that bad
Yes life gave me a sunny day
Yes life took the light away and made me mad

Yes life gave me talent
Yes life never made it exposed
Yes life taught me to be patient
Yes life made me believe my talent must be disposed
Yes life controls me!

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
