I’ve Learnt - poem - selma cookI’ve learnt to be gentle when life’s taught me to be tough


I’ve learnt to listen when no one hears what I say


I’ve learnt to forgive when injustice surrounds me


I’ve learnt to work hard while others play


I’ve learnt to find joy in the simple things I thought were dull


I’ve learnt to savor a smile, a hug, a kind word as cherished memories


I’ve learnt to give when I feel deprived, smile when heart is empty and love when I feel unloved.


As shadows dance beneath the movement of the sun, words speak to the heart, a gentle touch.
