Treasure Island

Aufie Zophy

(18 October 1964)

Wisdom and love

oh no, you,
I want to start not with I
but with you

Feelings of love
Eternal warmth is mine,
No, yours and mine
Wisdom from above
Light will brightly shine
On me,
On you and me

Becoming one, wisdom and love
Light and warmth melting in each other
Empathy and compassion, love
Humbleness and honesty, wisdom
Integrity and innocence, love
Justice, wisdom
Love and wisdom all around
Warmth and light unite
For you and me,
For us,
Yes, we.

    This is fraught with noble feelings and the essence of what being human is. It has also incorporated light and wisdom granted on us, coming from above! Beautiful poetic thread!
    Absolutely fraternal.

    Down to earth poem and i can feel how is faith can lead a person to be at different level of mentality.
    Since the faith path never bring us down but healer for the wounded, we should pray that many more will change their individualism priorities to humanity based decision.
    Excellent. (Report) Reply
