He That Finds Wisdom - Poem by Nnamdi LupeNwahara

Who would wisdom find?
Let him come hither,
Around his loins understanding bind,
Of more his strength is, than a pillar.

Who would wisdom find?
Close hold advice, as the child of his youth,
To perverse lips and lies be blind,
The same is to be feared than a brute.

Who would wisdom find?
To give ear to good counsel,
And to his brother be kind,
Much more is his appeal, than the lips of a fair damsel.

Who would wisdom find?
Taking heed the sayings of the Great Book, and to him without, have pity,
To break the fetters of unforgiveness,
That he also may keep with all diligence, his mind,
Of more might is he, than that takes a city,
For eternally his, is joy and happiness...
