You must always keep on learning.
Your entire life through.
For if you stop learning,
There’ll be nothing more to do.
For life is meant for growth,
Not for standing still.
If you do not wish to keep on learning
Your heart and soul you kill.
This does not mean useless drivel
Into your mind ingest,,
But soaking in the timeless classics,
That keep the brain refreshed.
Words and thoughts of old scholars,
Greeks like Aristotle and Plato.
Spiritual writings of the early Church
Like Saint Thomas Aquinas and Cato.
Ne’ery will you grow in wisdom
Nor expand your thoughts afar
If you seek to only find your knowledge
In the likes of Wikipedia.
Limited knowledge, limited learning
Keeps needed wisdom far at bay.
Without a lifetime of learning
You’ll be lost along the way.
Growth in truly learned wisdom
Makes you strong beyond your years.
No longer will you be misled
And driven into tears.
With wisdom you will forever be
Filled with Truth and Love.
With constant seeking Truth in life
You gain wisdom from above.
And that is something that no one can take from you.
