   Knowledge is always a useful tool 
And every one of us can easily obtain
Whether it be collage or even school
It’s about learning to excise ones brain

And often referred to us as scaffolding
  That is a platform for a solid foundation
When we’re out there and gaffe ring
   A whole swarm of vital information

That is the infrastructure on which to build?
  All of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations
A mixture! Too, finding your place in the world,
 If not bombarded with so many distractions 

   More easily recognised, thoughts and ideas
  Let’s face it I mean every one of us has some
    It’s about learning to use our eyes and ears
    If we took the time to expand our cranium

   Ok Perhaps not quite to the point of strain
    But learning to think a little more refined
  Use our thinking caps if not a runaway train
   If we try not to have a one tracked mind

  Predecessors will tell us what to think and do
  Very little in the way of varied subject matter
But they are guesser’s life a learning curfew?
I must emphasis one that dose build character

Knowledge is power; look at the books we read
   Be inquisitive it’s all about getting the know
Is there a thing as average if the will to succeed?
     Then there is no doubt that we can all grow

With this I was mearly giving my view on those small minority
Who choose to p there life up the world and have no sense of direction
Or any enthusiasum but i think no matter whether you learn from life
The literer we read whatever it may be we never stop learaning
And we recognise our selfs and others more  better understaning
       Knowlage  written by david scottjuly October 2016 also jan 
Inspired by past current exsperancines over the years

    Knowledge and reading are essential for life as this fabulous rhyming poem reminds us. I like how u say it is an infrastructure and a scaffolding. Creatively apt way of description. Kudos. So Nice to read from u again. Pls do write your thoughts about my latest poem too, under it.
