Wisdom Wisdom Wisdom Wisdom Wisdom Wisdom


Wisdom, is it wise to want
Wisdom, cannot be bought
Wisdom, is it ever caught
Wisdom, does it grow on trees
Wisdom, can I have some please
Wisdom, where can I find
Wisdom, is it in my mind
Wisdom, is it of the heart
Wisdom, please do not depart
Wisdom, is it inside me
Wisdom, will it set me free
Wisdom, please tell me how
Wisdom, to stop wanting it
Wisdom, to know I cannot keep
Wisdom, which I can only find
Wisdom, sitting at your feet
Wisdom, when I get up and go
Wisdom, please ensure I know
Wisdom, is not to take away
Wisdom, is the way I play.

I'm going for Wisdom knowing that within there will always be 'heart and soul.' I am so glad to have found this gem......marci.xo (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
