Treasure Island

veeraiyah subbulakshmi


ageless wisdom..


The experienced human are too boring,
Always carrying the rattans for canning,
The advisory signs of dangerous warning,
And the verses stickers for remembering,

The more they are experienced,
The more they get stable and old,
Their nonstop cautious statements,
Never appeal to the youngsters at heart.

A few subtle shoot up straight,
Withstanding the climes of storms and fight,
The house of wisdom has no place for clowns,
The wise young and old are alike and never get drowned.

    Nice...good thoughts may aged, but the age of each can be in many...from baby to oldest one, it maybe aged in terms of time after being spoken from mouth...but just see this, when it still relevant it will always ageless for any age consume it in their life..aged words but ageless value...and wisdom is this, almost immortal_Soul (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
