I like the connection between what is not given and what is self-supplied in these lines. Life is a continual learning process which
we tend to put into convenient "time/age" related slots given names
to signify their supposed worth. BUT -.
An enquiring mind ceaselessly burning
to know - will know in time by learning
What is actually needed to understand
And help achieving what is planned.

I think you are speaking for the masses with this one Tommy. I can certainly relate to it.
Love the battles with inadequate education
Nice one

It's a bit like writing poetry Tommy. I keep telling myself I write for myself not others. Trouble is a pat on the back would be nice every now and again 😎

I can identify with this Tommy. We all need to feel congratulated on some level, and to make the most of whatever life throws at us. The trouble with education is it has to be so f....ing competitive!
