The Bridge Of Life


As we cross
the bridge of life
we see our glories
and we see our failures

We learn from each
as we find our way
to the true path of wisdom

    Too many bridges to cross
    Before wisdom on us finally dawns
    And all the time that we lost
    In between will in our old age haunt.....

    I have to disagree....the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom....that is why some of the most educated may not have it, and some people with long histories of failures may look behind, see their mistakes yet go forward and still repeat the same mistakes.....but sometimes the most simple person has great wisdom because he depends on God for light on his path.

    That's so true we learn from our past experiences!

    A fool doesnot even learn through experiences
    A knowledgeable persons learns from his past experiences and
    A wiseman learns through observation of the fellow men! (Report) Reply

    our glories tend to hold us back, our failures goad us to strive.

    great wisdom in the few words of your poem, Dave. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
