The School Bus of Life

life lessons poem

Poem

 

Seeing all the tired people
On their small smartphones
Never feeling that they are
Alone in their bones
Crowded morning looking sunny
Light is moving sweet and bright
Hoping that their Tuesday workday
Will treat them good and right

On the school bus of life
We are learning twice
On the school bus of life
We are learning twice
Hoping to make the most
Of our precious joyride
On the school bus of life
We are learning twice

Learning to understand
Every human emotion
Making mistakes and
Learning who we are
Each lesson making our
Hearts a little swollen
Our memories good and bad
Left in every scar

Every day we wonder
What our futures have to offer
One step at a time
To get a little stronger
We feel we miss the moment
To make it all feel worth it
But our pervasive faith
Never lets us quit

On the school bus of life
We are learning twice
On the school bus of life
We are learning twice
Hoping to make the most
Of our precious joyride
On the school bus of life
We are learning twice
