Shashikant Nishant Sharma

Rookie (03 September,1988 / Sonepur, Saran, Bihar, India)


Knowledge is not what you put down
On paper white and brown
Knowledge should lead to wisdom
Take you from hell to God's Kingdom
Turn your vice into virtue
Practice makes perfect, its true
Knowledge should get reflected in you
Need no one's but your own review
Knowledge is a ladder for life
A ship to sail you out of strife
Knowledge in not what you learn by rote
Knowledge is something more than you thought
Knowledge is knowledge
You keep learning from school to college
And yet feel empty of thought
When your opinion is sought

    Love this piece! Knowledge is the epitome of the human condition! It is no merely writing, text or information in some database. Knowledge is the combination of data, information and lessons learned experiences, which all add up to a higher form of consciousness we like to call wisdom. Great poem! (Report) Reply

    A good try on knowledge which for sure its a lifetime lesson and hindsight wisdom is too late...would like to see the poem with 6 words omitted [Knowledge] you can edit it and it will be a winner...regards (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
