A New Dawn -

Life offers wisdom in its own time
Some lessons are only learned through pain
Like falling when you try to climb 
Or getting burned on fire’s flame

Some lessons are only learned by living
And some are learned through life’s regrets
Though every dawn is a new beginning 
These lessons learned, we won’t forget

Sometimes life brings us such frustration 
We fight against heartache and pain
But out of pain springs revelation
Through suffering, we’ve much to gain 

When faced with trials, we have a choice 
Let pain consume us, or in life rejoice 

© Rebecca L  ~ November 3, 2013

~ A Sonnet, inspired by a wise comment made to me by a man I admire very much, Demetrios Trifiatis ~

    This is awesome. The poem is about wisdom, and how we acquire wisdom through experience, mistakes, and trials. Yet also, the entire poem is one big chunk of wisdom! It is explained at the end: When faced with trials, we have a choice Let pain consume us, or in life rejoice This poem is gold.
