ysabetwordsmith: (Fly Free)

This is the freebie for the February 2019 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam.  It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] zianuray.


"Experience Stinks"


Growing up
is learning that

not everything which
is black-and-white
and fuzzy is a kitten.

Sometimes,
experience stinks,

but it's still better
than ignorance.

Notes:

This image was the other inspiration for the poem.

Yay!

Yep, pretty much!

Also, is it strange that I get warm fuzzies when you find one of my prompts suitable for a freebie?

Experience is what you get when you learn from your mistakes.

Knowledge is what you get when you learn from someone else's mistakes.

Wisdom is what you get, when you avoid making a mistake, and still learn from the mistake you didn't make.

Advantages of playing D&D, if you DM a lot, you get a knack of summarising stuff like that.

Here I was thinking this poem was about ethics, and then I saw the image in the notes and went OH NOOOOOOOOO
