I have just learned by Ann Wood

I have just learned

I learned to be more humble,
from no one to expect,
even sometimes infinitely reconciled
to keep silent ... and without complaining.

I learned to be better off
in all human terms
and I'm often misunderstood,
but I forgive mistakes.

I learned to be devoted,
when I love all my heart ...
Then nothing holds in secret,
but what I call the real names.

I learned to stick labels,
to overlook the vicious ...
And rarely use epithets,
which are for some awkward.

I learned to be more conscious
with that life that offers me ...
I try to make myself clear ...
Believe, sometimes helps!

I learned to be like a song,
but everyone can not sing it ...
Even if the text looks easy,
only real people know it.

I learned to be over things,
when I'm hurt, I'm quiet!
In spite of the envy,
I smile, I just smile!

Wow, this sounds like me but without my ability to express it the way you have done so beautifully. Oh to be like a song seems to fit my inner self whereas very few have sought to hear the melody that accompanied our exchange of words. This is by far one of the best writes in a long time and the way you've said it all with such honesty and true compassion has given me a new outlook on life. Most respectfully, as a writer and a human being it is a great pleasure to be a witness to the way you put your pen to the paper for your style is unique and all its own. After reading " I Have Just Learned" I feel pretty darn good with a hats off to you and cheers to a good cup of tea. Thanks again for the wonderful write and the wisdom that came along for the ride.
