I MUST KEEP LEARNING

I must keep learning
Why you peak at sunset and set at sunrise
Your no for yes and yes for no
Why you claim to love me but hate me so
The Creator so loved that He gave, you take
And give nothing in return you break
Like a rock against a mirror you shake
My very foundations, my Haiti it quakes

I must keep learning
Why I am the builder and you the crusher
In our midst you free foxes with fiery tails
Then say the boat in unity best sails
I swell in pride at your thoughts you burst
I go I come I go the thrusts
From side to side like the pendulum’s curse
The former, the latter, the source

I must keep learning
One rule for the top, another for the bottom
Different pots of soup, yet you say we are one
For few sweet, the rest adapt to bitter
The words that day to day I pray
The labor of our heroes past should never be in vain
The words that day to day I pray
That one day my sweat would be my gain

I'll keep learning....

    This is love. When loving we neglect everything negative and the only thing we see and feel is that perfect somebody. Even if he?she doesn’t treat us well. Well written 🙂
