“The Learning Curve” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 25/6/2020

Now The Learning Curve Within THIS WORLD...
When It Comes To How We Live Is A SERIOUS THING..... !!!
You Might THINK You Know A Person...
But It’s Clear That HIGHER LEARNING...
Means You Need To Be OBSERVANT... !!!

Because People Tend To Show...
What They WANT You To Know... !!!

Because What They Hide About Their Lives....
Could DENT Their PRIDE When What You FIND...
Is HOW MUCH They LIE... So This Is A Line Built For The WISE... !!!
You Really DON’T Know What You THINK You Know... !!!
And Are NOT As SMART As You Might THINK You Are... !!!
See I’m A Man of Verse And Poetic Words...
So You’d Think That I Know An ABUNDANCE of Words... !!!
Well Today What I Got Was A Comment That SHOCKED...
Because The Word... GROKKED... Left My Head In KNOTS... !!!
Because My First Thought WAS Had They Spelt The Word WRONG... ???
Because It Didn’t Look Right But I Figured That I...
Should Just Look This Word Up... !!!
And To My SURPRISE What Did My Eyes FIND... ?

That This Word Exists And Simply Means THIS...

... “To Understand DEEPLY And Have Empathy That Feeds Intuitively... “

..... Which Was News To Me ..... !!!
Cos’ It’s A Word That I’d Never Heard And Had Never Ever Seen... !!!
Until This Persons Comment Came From My Poetry... !!!
The Poem Is Called DEAL... And This Comment Made Me See...
How LITTLE That I Know.....
Even Though I’m One Who Reads And Has Good Literacy... !!!
Well At Least That’s What I BELIEVED... !!!
You See Knowledge Is DEEP Like The OCEAN's SEAS... !!!
And Knowledge Indeed Has So Many Seams...
And Different Levels Within Our Mental...
That It’s IMPORTANT NOT To THINK...
That You Know... EVERYTHING... !!!

And To Be More Humble Before You Stumble...
Upon Something That Makes You Think That You Are STUPID... !!!
Because Maybe You ARE... ?!?
To Think That You CAN'T GROW Even When You Get OLD...
Cos I’m FIFTY Now And Have Seen A Lot of Towns... !!!
As Well As LOTS of Clowns Who Have Run A LOT of Mouth... !!!
About How Much They Know From Women To Men And Even Some Children... !?!
Have... PLENTY of Talk That Seems ASSURED... !!!
But Is DEEPLY FLAWED And That’s For SURE... !!!
I’ve Heard Too Many Make CLAIMS That Are CLEARLY INSANE... !?!
About Relationships And... Historical Links...
When There’s SO MUCH To LEARN...
And Indeed DISCERN About This World...
And How It Turns That Requires RESEARCH... !!!
NOT Words With NO WORTH...
That CLEARLY DON'T Serve ANY DEPTH of Purpose... !!!
UNLIKE This Word... GROK ... That’s Inspired This Verse....
That Made Me Jot This Set of Words...
That Have PROVEN To Me That EVEN At... FIFTY... !!!!!
With ALL The Things That I’ve Lived To See And Indeed OBSERVED...
That NO MATTER How WISE You See Yourself As Being...
That There Are Things In This World That You May NEVER See...
So Show HUMILITY When It Comes To This Thing That Is DEEP And STEEP... !!!
That’s DEFINED By These Words AMAZINGLY Just Three That Are Simply THESE...
