What is the most important thing you have learned in your life?

Growing up, getting in trouble
Making mistakes, or just bad choices
Father always asking
“A lesson learned
Or just observed”

Always thought, sure
I learned the lessons
Possess a slight understanding
Of life and how humans are
How to trust, how to believe
And that we all have a conscience
That we must listen to

Eventually all of
My rules find exceptions
Holes in the nets
Errors in the calculations
This makes me realize
Perhaps I do not know anything

And I never learned a whole lesson
Just bits and pieces of the big picture
Just taking note of what doesn’t work
I am just observing my lessons for now
And still waiting to learn a truth

Miles C.
