Life is a gift that is way too precious to abuse
Yet some waste this chance, and often misuse
Life opportunities, they fail to discover and use
Their natural talents then they blame and accuse
The world, the circumstances, a pathetic excuse

Knowledge can be gotten from books we peruse
But wisdom is gotten by understanding life’s ruse
Thou life has questions that can irk and bemuse
Our level of ignorance often never fails to amuse
Many life challenges we face can vex and contuse
Minds that choose to remain closed and obtuse

Life can be hard that is a fact you and I can’t refuse
But we have the strength and the power to defuse
Life blows that knock us down and at times confuse
Our efforts, thus making failure much more profuse
Still we must never give up a message I must infuse
