I Want Wisdom - Poem by Naveed Akram

I want wisdom to burn the pages,
I wish he destroyed me lately;
For my homework was unfinished
And slept for pigeons to secondly pass.
The mystery of a night cancels rhyme,
For the poetry of a life so extravagant
Is full of decisions from a sacred place.
The wisdom is seeing, the wise men stare
At the bridges that are crossed so well by the travellers
And adventurers.
