Learning Compromise


dreaming in technicolor, things seemed

so much simpler, back then, but, really,

every adult hides those harder realities,


bills and burdens pile up to the ceiling,

willingly wishing for a better tomorrow

but not knowing if our depression ends


faithfully praying that hardships cover

us in a bevy of lit understanding and

interesting scars, we are becoming


educated at the slick school of hard knocks,

no worrying about higher grades, because

everyone fails everyday, learning compromise
