Wisdom's Tears - Poem by john chizoba vincent


Trying to forget someone you love
Is like trying to remember someone you never met.
Whatever that does not stress you can not make you,
I am the book that many rejected and in me
Lies the hope for mankind but humanity is weak.
I stay once am accepted by them that cherish me
And are called by my name in days of trouble.

I am man's enemy because they failed to listen to me,
I warned the foolish to tame his tongue and know
What he speak day and night, for out of his heart are
Issues of life.
But he despise me and make me foolish.
I told the women to cover up but they go naked,
I am wisdom, I am the fountain of life....
I am wisdom, the MOTHER whose children rejected
With no course.

Come to me and live for I owes your life,
return to me and I shall guide you preciously.
I have tried to dance to their tune but failed.
Why have you forsaken me Oh children of men?
Come onto me and I will come unto you,
Where lies your power if not me and my sisters?
I have been to the seas, field, oceans and mountains
To call my children but they abandoned me like
A fearful motherhen who left his chicks for the kite.

Hear me, when the judgement shall Come
Never put the blame on a faithful mother
Whose heart is always thinking of his children.
