Stormy Lessons

A life of learning is not for the meek
  against your views some will loudly speak;
    jackals sneering and snickering in their folly
      and in that moment others may seem jolly.
Persevere in all your thoughts as most are not that flawed
  as when all beauty meets a beast and so then must be pawed
     like a raging vandal they will come roaring in their glory
      it is your peace and confidence that illustrate the story.
Becalm the savage verbal gale with your gentle words and reason
   it is in your words the logic lies and most will find that pleasin'
    and when the storm subsides and skulks away
     know that in your learning - you taught someone today.

    it was like every word was like thunder from a cloud; emotion lost for words....
