It is in the learning,
the stretching of the mind;
in the growing up,
ourselves we start to find.
Yet in the learning, there is a struggle,
and sometimes failure, yes, it’s true;
it’s how we handle each of these,
that determines if we make it through.
We expand our horizons,
when we’re learning something new;
and open many new doors,
to help our dreams come true.
Life is more interesting,
and truly, a lot more fun;
when we keep our brain engaged,
it keeps boredom on the run.
So, if you’ve nothing to do,
and for something new your yearning;
give yourself a wondrous gift,
and dive into some new learning.
