Always learning

We didn’t know how to walk

Until we did

We didn’t know how to talk

Until we did

What if we had never tried

There are lots of things

We don’t know how to do

That doesn’t mean

We cannot do them

Growing older makes us


It can also make us too


The lack of years left to live

Makes failure seem risky

Fear of trying new things

Creeps in and stifles ideas

We forget its okay

Not to know

Until we do

That’s how we started out

In this wonder filled world

Let us end that way too

Always learning

Something new

E.A. Fussell
