“Hurt people hurt others, because it’s what they know how to do; Experience indeed is the best teacher, but it doesn’t always teach the right lessons…or do we sometimes just learn wrong?” – Makafui.
I usually put out free verse poems, but sorry to disappoint you today, this is going to be something different.
For a long time, I’d been at a level of faith(belief), that for convenience, I’ll call the ‘intellectual level’. I believe everything in the Bible is true and inspired by the Spirit of God. I know all the miracles – and there are some really blatantly epic ones – and most of the stories by heart. But they just didn’t seem or feel like they would apply or happen to me…couldn’t really accept that they could happen to me (just for the record, I don’t particularly look forward to wrestling with a lion, or surviving living with a bunch of starving lions, or killing a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass, or commanding the entire universe to stand still…this one would actually be really cool, but it’s not about being cool).
“There are lessons we learn, not from personal experience, but by a sublime blend of keen observation, humble study, and divine empathy.” – Makafui.
