 PAD Challenge day 5:  Write a discovery poem

I have discovered the sultan of pride
Is not easily dethroned
Master-mind of a thousand lies
Though with my tear-drops stoned

I have discovered love’s great joy
Is like a quick switch-blade
For sorrow keens its sharpest curve
Where joy its acme laid

I have discovered in your eyes
How there, the truth oft slips
Regardless of the syllables
A-flounder on your lips

I have discovered beauty’s best
Is not a thing of skin
Its fairness is unparalleled
Where love shines from within

I have discovered year on year
That life’s ceaseless return
Regardless of status or age
Are more lessons to learn
