New Knowledge

The drive for life
To learn something new
Begins with strife
A struggle to do

For within that strife
Comes new knowledge
About oneself's life
Truthfully to acknowledge

On one approach
It can be applied
That I must reproach
What is to collide

On the other hand
Meet the challenge
Head on with a stand
Fully in the range

By hanging on the edge
Certainly you will learn
Precariously on that ledge
The true concern

Rather than be arrogant
Pompously closed mind
Humility will grant
The openness to find

For growth fruitful
The smart intelligence
New pathways bountiful
A fortuitous absorbance

So the learned lesson
Be open to mistakes
Struggle with a question
Even when the head aches.
