For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

The half doused camp fire..

The smart people are the ones,
Who learn from other people’s mistakes,
The innocents are the ones,
Who become the victims to teach others the lessons,

Some people may call themselves as daring,
Actually they are the fools, reluctant in learning and protecting,
The new businessmen after retirement,
The new businessmen after graduation,

The new businessmen after someone’s ill advice,
Always fail and that is the reason,
Only One out of ten businesses survives after ten years.
Learning from people’s experience is the best lesson,

One should not avoid and ignore,
If they don’t want to lose their sleep,
Half done business and half hearted love,
Half destroyed enmity and partial involvement in any work,
Will destroy our peace suddenly, when we are unprepared,
As the flame developed from the half doused camp fire.

    Don't get into businesses that you don't know anything about. Nice advice for retirees and all others. Great advice through a beautiful poem.

    Good symbolism...half doused camp fire can ignite full fires, a nice poem with a nice message.
