Wisdom - Poem by Oyekake Satty Joshua

I cannot declare
I've found you
Nor say,
I've entered your gate,

But this I know,
I rely not on the experience of the past
to solve the problems of the present.

But rather,
I look for uniqueness in every situation,
and seek to understand it,
and remain open to your instruction.
For Faith is not without knowledge,
And Wisdom is not without understanding.
