    Learn the important my people I ask
    those lessons that provide us a base
    a base for the construction of self
    a self that is confident and strong

    Learn the important for reasons that are real
    those lessons that supply hope to all that see
    a star for those who wish to be free
    a freedom that lends itself to those who are not

    There are important lessons that are never taught
    because of ignorance or lack of definition
    so define the things that are important to you
    and you will begin to build a new life

    This new life will entail.....
    freedom undiscoverd
    joy unsurpassed
    love unconditional
    strength unbreakable
    and faith unshakable

    So what is important you ask?
    and why haven't you learned it in the past?

    They are those things that make you you
    They are those things that help others
    They are things never taught
    because very few ever master them
    because the important was never defined

    The important are the life lessons that are real
    they take time and patience there's no magic pill

    Learn the important my people I ask
    real freedom comes with education
    real happiness comes with self-esteem
    real love comes with growth of the soul
    real strength comes with helping others be strong
    real faith comes from the Lord.

    When will you start learning?

    Through knowledge we gain wisdom
    Through knowledge we gain understanding.
    Through knowledge many doors are opened.
    Through lack of knowledge, there's often pain
    Through knowledge we find ourselves.
    Through knowledge and faith our eyes will be opened
    like that of a newborn babe.
    Through knowledge we choose our paths in the this journey called life.

    Knowledge is a never ending process,
    I agree gain knowledge in your life.
    Knowledge is wisdom.....

    Hey A007 :wave:
    Great piece!
