THINGS I HAVE LEARNED

I have learned;
crap does occur,
I have learned;
there is a his and a hers.

I have learned;
sometimes love is not enough,
I have learned;
there really is a diamond in the rough.

I have learned;
the outside does not pertain to the inside,
I have learned;
it is easier to take it all in stride.

I have learned;
I'm healthier if I manage my stress,
I have learned;
every day is a work in progress.

I have learned;
I stick out like a sore thumb,
I have learned;
I march to the beat of a different drum.

I have learned;
my greatest strength was my biggest flaw,
I have learned;
sometimes it is the luck of the draw.

I have learned;
some lessons you do over and over,
I have learned;
there really is a four-leaf clover.

I have learned;
sometimes, time does make it better,
I have learned;
I can be a go getter.

I have learned;
good intentions, can be misunderstood,
I have learned;
there is nothing stronger than motherhood.

I have learned;
you cannot avoid pain and sorrow,
I have learned;
not everyone has a tomorrow.

I have learned;
if I starve the bad it numbs the good,
I have learned;
Pinocchio was made of wood.

I have learned;
the truth does exist,
I have learned,
it is easier if I don't resist.

I have learned,
you just have to let go of some shit,
I have learned,
it is better to be legit.

I have learned,
doing the right thing is worth it in the end,
I have learned
that a dog really is man's best friend….

This is twice today, that I have dealt with the incidence of repeating words in a poem. I guess I had better get used to it! In both instances, I have to swallow my dislike for the practice, because both times, it works rather well. Nice job. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

You've also learned to format !

nice piece,
Obi.
