Experience is a teacher of life
providing answers to the mistakes,
solutions to songs breaking hearts,
truths shattering darkness in doubts
beating confidence to shamefulness
when there’s failure to grasp subject matter
through closed eyes and a closed mind.
Experience is a good teacher
tapping a desk to wake you
from a heavy sleep, a burden,
Encouraging focus, eyes forward,
Preparing for the next test.
