Learning To Unlearn

Onward in life
learning to unlearn
certain traits becomes
a great part 
of our becoming 
One we should never
The big bend 
in the river
we should never miss

The questioning of self 
is how stick meets stone
The questioning of self 
is how the fire 
gets stoked
Otherwise it dies 
we row wayward
get lost in the smoke
and never become

    Beautiful, though sensing a touch of melancholy. Nice way of expressing even the slightest of feeling. This is why I love poetry
