Such is Life..........Curtal Sonnet

When we are young, we are convinced we know.
A great deal more than what we really do.
We have to learn by hard experience.
Sometimes we must just go with the flow.
Circumstances can often force us to
do things which seem contrary to good sense
Because we do not fully understand.
That there are many other points of view.
And what we think we know may cause offence.
They will dismiss our ignorance out of hand.
Simply to prove they have the power to.
Although their own views seem to lack credence too
