To Unlearn

A life time of learning
Still trying to form an opinion

A finite grasping at infinity

In awe of those
Who know it all
Before they have matured

Yet time has come
For me
To unlearn

So maybe one day
With a heart and mind of a child
I will see the wonders of everyday

  1. That wonderful poem reminded me of my days in Sunday school. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
    Or as you say, ”
    So maybe one day
    With a heart and mind of a child
    I will see the wonders of everyday
    It makes sense if we realise that what is around us everyday is our own heaven.

  2. Beautifully said and illustrated. As I get older, I find that so much of my formal education is no longer valid (for my personal heart as well as current ways of looking at things). So much that I internalized about how one “should” be in the world has taken me/is still taking me years to unlearn. I figure by the time I almost get there – my fur will be all askew and mostly rubbed off – just like the Velveteen Rabbit. 🙂 I’ve always looked at you as someone who has been light years ahead at following his heart and accepting other people.
