I'd Like to Think...poem

Poetry By: Mike Stevens

What I'd like to think, vs. reality!

I'd Like to Think...

I'd like to think I've seen it all,

The good, the bad, the rises and the falls

I'd like to think I know everything there is to know

The wisdom of a lifetime, with many years to go

I'd like to think I'm viewed as being very wise

That I have the answers for all the tears you've cried

I'd like to think I'm one very smart guy

I figure out the problem; I figure out why

I'd like to think I have the answers for everything

I know where the party is, and just what to bring

I'd like to think my wisdom is complete

That there's nothing more to learn, nothing left unseen

I'd like to think that, but I know the truth

Many more mysteries to solve; so much left to do

My life is a work in progress; things change, every day

I'd like to think there's value in everything I say

I'd like to think I'm smart enough to realize

I'll never stop learning; it's foolish to think otherwise...
