Study (A Poem)


Poetry / Monday, January 15th, 2018

The one thing to study,

Is the thing oh-so near;

It’s looking back at you in the mirror,

It’s the very thing you fear.

The one thing to study,

Is the thing that’s elusive;

Yet it hides in plain sight,

Getting away with being abusive.

The one thing to study,

Is the thing you truly cherish;

Yet it gets away with murder,

And may be the reason why you’ll perish.

The one thing to study,

Is the cause of your pain;

Yet to heal you must enter it,

So take a torch and stay sane.

The one thing to study,

Is what you try to protect;

It’s the thing you try to uphold,

What society will elect.

The one thing to study,

Is known as the hardest of all,

It’s why many don’t study it,

And why we’re known to fall.
