    Post please edit and give your ideas about this poem.

    Hello everybody,

    Would you please give your ideas about the following poem?

    "Theory"

    I am following the book theories,
    Walking around so long years
    That failed to prove realities,
    Keep me wandering about others.

    Dear taghavi:

    Does this poem mean: "For many years I have been living my life according to certain theories I read in books. The theories have failed to be of any help with the realities of life. Now I am wondering whether any theories are useful." ?
