Beware oh traveller (Poem)


Is life to be spent in the pages of a book?
Is it better spent learning from the road you took?
Though there is nothing wrong with whatever you pick, beware oh traveller that you give it a think.
A book can teach you your t’s and p’s
Through the road you learn thank you and please
Yet neither of the two give you a guarantee,
Of gaining success with a finality.
Instead it is often a function of your will
Do you have what it takes to climb the hill?
You may never know unless you take the risk, beware oh traveller that you give it a think.
They say relationships are to be felt,
That love is to be experienced for the heart to melt,
Yet words can be enough to feel a lion’s pelt.
It describes the pain of violence but without the belt.
Whether you shield your heart or let it sink, beware oh traveller, that you give it a think.
