The school of life

So many years, spent learning others lives
Stories of inventors, scientists, war criminals,
How brave they were, inspirational, full of life,
And me sitting at the desk and writing the stories down.

It was only when I entered the school of life
That I realized I don’t know how to fight
Fight and elbow, my way through
I was browsing my notes but couldn’t find a clue.

So unprepared, the world slapped my face
One time, two times, how much I could take
Each fall has though made my sight more clear
However it took many years

Until I realized what kind of hero I wanna be
And I learned to swim in the open sea
Of all the options, the life has to bid
And I chose wisely my story, I know I did.
