Poetry: Eternal Learning

Out of the Sandbox

By Matthew Philbrook


If we gained life eternal

What kind of world would be?

It would be good for all to care

To work together, making everything better

To pass on to the children the collected knowledge


Would wisdom fill our journal?

Could mercy and love be all we see?

Misery and crime have gone elsewhere

To each other, we decide to be a debtor

Everyone’s true inner spirit we acknowledge


Can the best of mankind be external?

To help each other we all agree

That good news would not be rare

True kindness the pacesetter

And mankind’s enrichment taught in every college.
