One's Experience Is the Best Teacher

You have a well groomed and beautiful dog.
Does it bite?

'Only when I take his leash off.
And I express my annoyance with someone.
He is very clever in picking up on my moods.
And he is trained to be protective.
Can you guess what mood I am in? '

What do you think,
I am a mind reader?

'Not at all.
I want to answer your question,
In the best way I can.
I've always been told,
One's experience is the best teacher.'

Sonnet: Nature’s The Best Teacher

Mother Nature’s the best teacher we know,
Teaching both young and old without a fee;
Through flora, fauna and all creatures, oh!
Her lessons being unique, naturally.

Vowels, consonants, she shows to utter;
Her music is most melodious to ears;
And anyone in her lap learns better,
Than what classrooms can teach them o’er the years.

A loving Mother Nature is to all!
She soothes their minds and mends their broken hearts;
A friend and guide and playmate, one can call,
Who shares her hidden secrets in small parts.

So, go to Mother Nature, learn a lot;
No teacher betters her in any slot.

Experience, The Best Teacher

When I was a student,
Many a teacher preached a sermon.
A sermon of, surprisingly, same subject.
This tedious theme could be thus summarized:
‘ if I could my student life re-live,
Very differently would I behave'.

A discourse denoting a dirge
A communication connoting a caution
If not a counselling to student who have ears
Students who would not shed tears,
Because they have ears to hear
And wise enough to understand,
Words of wisdom, even few.

But why to us their sermon relate?
Why to us their stories declare?

It is because about our future they care.
Careful, concerned and committed teachers,
Eager their experience to share,
Aware of the facts, glaring,
Facts preserved in an axiom,
The often quoted and tested maxim,
That experience is the best teacher.

Experience is the best teacher,
To those without any experience,
The best teacher is experience shared.
Shared by fair and frank fellows,
Who When good opportunities
Came beggarly begging,
Refused to these opportunities utilise,
Reaping the result of their recklessness, fully
Learning first-hand from their folly,
That opportunity knocks but once,
And once unutilised is lost forever.

But shared experiences meticulously applied,
Will save one the superfluous suffering,
Subsequent from the silly slip-up,
Of turning deaf ears to sermons.
Signifying that total respect to advice,
Plays a crucial role in molding us,
And goes to lend credence
To the usually used saw, that
Experience is the best teacher.

The Best Teacher

Experience is the best teacher!
Ansd she belongs to you;
But there is no smoke without a fire! !
Because broken dreams are very hard to solve.

The Best Teacher

the best teacher is the midwife

she helps you
give birth to ideas

she eases the pain
she wipes the blood
she takes the baby
from you
yet you know that
everything is safe and sound

you hear you baby cry
as she raises him
invertedly up
against the sky

then she leaves
in tiptoeing silence
as you sleep soundly again
closing your eyes for more
sweet dreams

You're The Best Mom!

Moms are best!
They carry us to their tummy for 9 months
Even if their one feet is into death,
They choose us to be born
Thanks mom for loving me.


Moms are best!
They re like wonder woman
They woke up early, prepared us healthy foods
They cleaned the house, and gave all we need.
Thanks mom for taking care of us.


Moms are best!
They re like a nurse, but they are the best
When were sick, they’re the first one who get hurt.
They never sleep, just to make sure that were fine!
Thanks for the moms hug it’s like medicine, can cure all the pain.


Moms are best!
They are the best teacher.
When were young and not yet studying.
They are the first one who teach us good manners and respect elders
Thanks mom for guiding and teaching me, while I’m growing up.


Moms are best!
They’re not only mom but “best friend”
They are always there and hear my thoughts
They keep your girl secret and give good advice.
Thanks moms for the happy girls bonding, for always understanding me.


Moms are best
But my mom is the best mom in the world!
Thanks you mom for your love and everything
I thank GOD because I have a mom like you.
So I wrote this poem just for you.

My teacher is the best in the world

Books are confusing
.Exams are tentioning.
But u are never bussy
To make it easy
U help me find my fire
Though i was big liar
Dared to disciplined us
Though we were abandoned
We use swear words on ur back.
Still u show lack of anger on ur face.
Sometime strict to make us fit.
Cuz u are the best teacher in world.
Ur lil' appreciating words
Are like torn apart from heaven
In a hand of gift teacher
A class room is a magical placd
There's smile on each child's facd
So heaven never call them back
Cuz my teacher is best in world
Justin bieber cody simpson
Taylor swift greyson chance
All in side when my teacher is in sight.
Hipocrates, socrates
All are senseless
Shakespear william wordsworth
All are wordless
Dawn of each poets and scientist
Begins with teacher.
Without my teacher
They are voiceless.
Cuz my teacher is best in the world.
Hey teacher i want to give
U round of applause
Cuz u got us fell in love
With the books
That were never in our looks.
U deserve a standing ovation
Cuz u 're the act of forgiveness and love. My best friend.
That's why i say my teacher is
The BEST IN WORLD.
Thank you!

When one's own become one's enemy

When one's own
Become one's enemy
One does not need
Others to hurt him
Miseries
Become his friend
Tears give him company
Desire to live vanish
Loneliness creeps in
Depression sets in
Life becomes hell
Every moment one dies
Start thinking
There is no other choice
But to leave the world
Free him self from
Miseries

This Exchange Is the Best One that Is Accepted

Satisfying the attention seeking egos of others,
Is easy.
Express a life lived that is disliked.
Complain about other people.
And pretend you are miserable on a daily basis.
People love to feel,
Someone besides themselves...
Shares a feeling of unhappiness,
That is heard and confessed.
And left to go unaddressed.
This exchange is the best one that is accepted,
By those seeking to satisfy with attention...
A boosting done to uplift their egos.

One Thought This The Best To Do

Everyday they would return home,
To open their doors.
With ever conceivable complaint,
They had invited with them to come in.

And everyday an argument,
Over what happened would ensue.
Leading closer to a separation.
Since one thought this the best to do.

And one day one entered,
To find it quiet inside.
With all space within,
Cleared.

And at night one would hold a pillow tight,
Wishing for a familiar snoring missed...
Would again be heard,
To begin.

The Best One Yet

Her armpits are hairy
her best friend's a fairy
she don't like Moe, Curly, or Larry
she likes candle wax and lithographs
of the Virgin Mary

She's never owned a television
her living room's a hippy prison
full of wine, wicker, and plastic beads
And four editions
of the Norton Anthology

She's the kind of chick
who'd never like me
yet she flips for her professor
of Vedic philosophy -

A one-armed Indian
twice her age
who thinks socks and sandals
are all the rage

He speaks in parables
and reeks of sweat
and thinks she might be
the best one yet

One of the best

Can any one claim and dispute?
The position of mother and her repute
The new born wait eagerly for early food
Mother holding it high in neighborhood

It has natural backing and understanding
Mothers always stand firm in defending
Whatever may be the cause she is always there?
Children are safe with no worries or fear

How come mothers remain unconcerned?
No temptation for anything even if offered
Nothing can deter when children are waiting at home
Rushing to nest with food in mouth for welcome

What a joy to feel when al the mouth opens!
Take food one by one still keep eyes close
Direct feeding with full contentment
Nest so high with no possible movement

Birds or human beings, love has only one language
Discharge your obligation and leave behind imprint on page
It is recognized already even if not told on the face
Mothers may always remain in fray with lively race

See the birds with no worry and no talent?
Timely arrangement even with all the materials absent
No expertise yet pleasant display of safe nest
Free from any danger and considered to be one of the best

Seeking the Best and Freshest Poontang They Could Get

Loose poontang was all over the place.
Some was sold but most was given away.

The sailors would dock upon these shores...
Many years ago!
Seeking the best and freshest poontang they could get.
And leaving the townspeople with resources...
Some hoarded and most adored for the ease,
This abundance left them...
To feed their sleazy greedy needs!

The critics wished to address,
The freshness of the poontang.
Disclaiming this did not represent...
Images they declared misunderstood when presented.
They wanted it to be widely known...
They are of the self righteous kind!
At least the wanted this kept charaded.

But no one would deny,
The poontang kept their manicured pretentions...
From taking an economic nose dive.
And those who came to taste and marvel the poontang agreed...
This adventure was no different than casinos.
And perhaps legalizing this mischief,
Would increase their incomes and not have their dollars bleed.

And so it was!
Poontang began to lift low spirits.
Thus providing another rewritten chapter...
To raise the stakes.
And erase the already lowered levels of tolerance!
Afterall...
It is about that dollar!
And how to achieve getting it without offending dignities!

Even the gutter can become cherished,
When the status of it is upgraded!
And marketed as such!
Giving it a refurbished quality of class and snob appeal!
Everyone will want to have a piece of it!
And so the gutters too,
Were painted to induce captivating reflections of rainbows.

The Best Gift One Can Receive

Awakening from values placed,
On the emptiness of symbols and images...
Can save a lot of waste of one's appreciation,
For others and their worth as human beings.

People wait until it is too late,
To live their lives from a basic point of view.
Believing the purpose of life is in acquiring things,
To pursue with a flaunting of pretentions.

Today people are teaching their children,
It is okay to take from others.
Then find what they have done,
Disappoints with the results that come.

Today people do not accept,
Their own consequences they face.
Only to place blame and find fault,
With those directions they chose to take.

Awakening from values placed,
On the emptiness of symbols and images...
Can save a lot of waste of one's appreciation,
For others and their worth as human beings.

Awakening before it is too late,
To self examine...
Is not a sign of weakness.
It is the best gift one can receive.

Afterall...ultimately,
Is it what one has that delivers to them happiness?
Or...
Is it the caring of someone shown that is freely given,
And genuinely felt and known...
That validates with an acknowledgement,
What they have been seeking that is regarded as progress.

'I've given you every 'thing' that money can buy.
And you act as if I don't exist.
It is as if...
I don't know who you are,
Anymore.'

~Oh?
And 'who' are you?
Who are 'we'?
WHAT are we?
Machines are being made...
To 'do' what we 'do'.
Other than self destruction...
What other purpose do we serve? ~

'I'll see you later.
When,
Hopefully...
You are in a better mood.'

My Mind Is Not Design To Only Address The Best

My mind is not design to only address the best.
Although I try to hide it...
My thoughts sometimes are dirty!
My mind is not design to only address the best.
Just like the rest,
I do enjoy raw recipes!

I select what's on my mind all the time I do.
With a purpose and a meaning,
And how it's done too!

Not me!
With wishes to impress.
Just to leave some people guessing.

With me what you see is what you get that's it!
I'm not the one to sit around because I do not fit.
Or be chosen by debate.
To prove myself worthy!

The Best Time

The best time
To cry is in the
Silence of the night
When the tears in your
Eyes glisten like the
Rains on the window
And you know…
No one will know

The Best Way To Deal With Doubt

The best way to deal with doubt,
Is to ignore it...
To experience the consequences.
Doubt will then not be of one's concern.
With a lesson learned.
And the freeing up of space in one's head.

The Master Teacher

Looking back on
yesterday,
caught by
rules of life.

I am a
product
emerging from
ashes
somewhat like
the phoenix.

ever returning
stablizing,
once more
surviving.

being taught
by the master
teacher,
one will not
forget.

The Firm Ones Aren't Always The Best to Choose

Relationships of any kind,
Should be chosen very wisely.

And the older one gets,
The selecting of relationships...
Is much like picking tomatoes.

The firm ones aren't always the best to choose,
Especially when cooking them...
With corn, onions and green peppers.

The softer ones seem to create,
A more delicious taste.

The Best Of Both Worlds

everyone keep asking me who am I?
I'm just an ordinary girl
I belive in all prophets
I belive in humanity
I read the Holy Quran
I read poetry and literature
I'm against racism
I support charity
I'm jut an ordinary girl
I wear a veil
I respect human rights
I'm not an angel
I'm not a rationalist
maybe I'm not perfect because no one is,
but I'm always me
I 've the best of both worlds.
