Did U Know

There are times when a simple hug may get u thru the Day. There are
times when u come to realize, all u need to do is Pray. There are
times for Seeking and for Learning If these things in Life are So.
There's a time when the Teacher must ask the Student, is this true or
Did u Know? Did u know that words can only Display what is written
on the Heart. That sometimes things are closer together, when they may
seem far Apart. Did u know that metaphors are sometimes used to
conceal the Meaning that truly Lies. To Initiate thought of Explicit
Definition and Cloak it in Disguise. Did u know there may be those
who Cross your path simply as a Means to an End.And Like the metaphor
Conceal the Truth and call themselves a Friend. Did u know that Time
and Perseverence Can fix things one by One. Like that Powerful yet
unspoken Love Between a Father and a Son. If your Role is the Teacher
then you'll Understand why these words cannot become Hollow.Like a
characteristic of the best Leaders, They always know when to Follow.
If your Role is the Student, then Understand Nothing is beyond your
Reach. Continue to Persevere and Learn, Until it's your Time to Teach
If Your Role in life is quite Uncertain And u don't know where to Go.
Simply ask yourself, "Are these things true?" Or Did u really Know?
