I’VE WITNESSED

The Acts, Actions

And antics.

Monuments to accomplishments,

Efforts destroyed.

Murders of Bodies

And reputations.

The hazing of the naïve,

Innocence contaminated.

Lessons learned

But wisdom refused.

Experiences recorded,

Narcissism defining freedom

Ignorance preferred.

Diseases cured.

All that we have been and have become

While attending,

Imprisoned in this school called life;

Whose walls are made of time.

What will begin forever,

When we graduate

Even though failed;

No longer tethered by time?

ETERNITY

  5. I love the lines:

    Lessons learned
    But wisdom refused.
    Experiences recorded,
    Narcissism defining freedom
    Ignorance preferred.

    You have captured beautifully a lot about life and humanity.
