I think the poem is about how you have to lead you're own life. you can't
depend on others to do it for you. Also, just because he's a learned man
doesn't mean anything. You need to let go and choose the path for you're
own destiny.

All humans wish for greater understanding of the "Big Questions"--questions
such as 'Who am I', 'How did I get here', and, perhaps most importantly,
'What am I to do?' In "A learned man", Crane speaks about this need to
question and understand. The learned man professes to have answers, but
soon finds himself in the same position as the speaker. In the same way we
may have no shortage of those who try to answer these big questions and at
the same time have a shortage of good answers. True understanding eludes
us.
