To learn is to recognize something,
Perhaps right from wrong,
The willingness to change,
A movement from one place to another,
Understanding of why or where I am.
Real learning is not becoming a parrot,
Reciting facts from today’s scientific latest,
But rather understanding,
A spiritual knowledge,
Not bereft of feelings, but embracing them,
Part of me. Truly.
In doing so we have to embrace the darkness, as well as the light.
