Experience is hurt ossified like a
Xiphoid into a lesson not a bone.
Personal and life changing are traits that
Enlist souls it touches in tears and loss.
Regret is an incense experience burns
In self esteem’s temple
Eclipsing joys and memories alike.
Negativity and failure drape it like
Curtains curtailing charisma with care.
Experience is man’s emancipation from ignorance.
Definitions: Xiphoid is a small cartilaginous extension of the lower inferior part of the sternum, which is usually ossified in the adult human.
