Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


18 July 2013





I’ve never learned much

in school that applied to Life

and I think we should,

like how to deal with people,

and real-life situations.


It’s necessary.

I imagine most of us

are avoiders though.

We might learn, hopefully, how

NOT to do things the hard way.


We observe, falter,

with bad role models, or none,

instead of being taught.

I think it’s time we began

equipping first, not after.


I know why we learn

the liberal arts and such,

stuff I’ve never used.

I just wish I’d been schooled in

life skills, something I could use.
