The Lucky Few

Few are the lucky ones

Who know wisdom

From the start,

For the rest;

         We must burn our hands

         To learn the stove is hot,

         We must wound with words

         To realize the virtue of silence,

         We must suffer our broken hearts

         To know the true value of love.

Lucky are the few

Who know wisdom

From the start.
