And shame your pride
In return for the long-lost humanity of those who live
life by trial and error,
Unafraid of failure, but not satisfied with it,
Looking back only to

You have taught me that even though Life is a labyrinth that only way to learn from LIfe is by trial and error. There are no easy ways out. Nor should there be. This is a fanstatic poem.
