The Lesson


Life is a school, they say
And we are here to learn.
It’s not an exam to be passed
Or a competition to be won.

There’s one lesson
I’m taking a while to learn.
So it keeps coming back to me.
Different teachers, different classrooms.

The lesson?
Value yourself.
Honor the good within.
Focus on your own well-being.

I’m linking in to The Writers’ Post prompt given by Suzy Que here.

  1. “Value yourself” is an excellent lesson. Reminders are always welcome 🙂 It is right up there for me with the value of saying No. 😀

    Thank you for a lovely read, Corinne.

  2. That’s right Corinne…The well being of people around us begins with our well being and I seem to have always maintained that. ‘Value Yourself’ a great lesson indeed! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  3. Life is a full time informal school. And life lessons are a part of it. The failed lessons are a part of the lesson which we pass with flying colors. A valuable reminder.

  4. Words to treasure.
    Self-worth seems so lacking in people nowadays. They forget to value themselves, to cherish themselves…
    Beautifully written 🙂

  5. The poetry is so simple and again filled with a message so important. I wish all parents could narrate it as a precursor to preschool for setting the perfect tone of learning 🙂
