Erudition | By: Mark Lenig | | Category: Poem - Advice Bookmark and Share



Life for others is not as it seems.

People are not always as we think they are,

Nor do they react the way we think they do.

But all of us feel pain, somewhere deep down inside.

Some cover it like a mask, out to hide identity,

While others show expression clear on their face.

Some of us can learn from life’s little lessons,

And some of us can choose not to bother.

It is however a sure thing that one will prosper,

And the other will be left standing alone in the dust of communion.

Now dear readers, which kind of person are you?
