Wisdom - Poem by rico graham

I’d rather be wise than to be strong
Because if you are wise you already possess strength
Your wisdom makes your character
Not the things you own
If you claim you have so much
Then close your eyes and it’s all gone
With wisdom, if you close your eyes you still have it
The things that you cannot touch is powerful
Like wisdom, it can only be spoken, and lived
But not touched or bought
