So I Learned

I thought I knew wisdom
Because I knew nothing
Until I met fate
Then I learned something

I thought I knew love
Because I knew fate
Until I met pain
Who taught me to hate

I thought I knew past
Because I knew forgive
Until I saw future
And learned how to live

Humane Society

Though my hopes
Are often euthanized by razor wire
Long buried before conception
I still hope
In a satire of sorts
That I could rewrite the script
