"I Believe"

I believe
That wisdom is admitting
That you don’t know everything
That the answers to life’s questions
Are hidden in the stories
Of our elders

I believe
That my mother was perhaps right
All along
When she sung that same song
She was so fond of
I should have listened
Rather, arrogant youth petitioned
My rebelliousness
Into traveling a road of naïve carelessness
Knowing that the path led
To a soft ass and hard head
But I learned that the best teachings
Come from life’s mistakes
And if you’re an A-student
One lesson is all it takes
