Wisdom With Wage - Poem by Randy McClave

As old as I am
I should have known more,
But, I never did give a damn
Maybe that is why I am still poor.
Some say that life comes with a book
That everyone should read,
But, I was always too busy to give it a look
So, the chapters I never did heed.

Knowledge isn't guaranteed to arrive
Just because you get older,
You are now just happy to be alive
As you have erred and are now much bolder.
They've said to read your owner's manual
Always from the beginning unto the end,
As it is daily and not semi-annual
Then the experience you can comprehend.

I am not any smarter
Than what I was decades ago,
Sometimes I am that martyr
From what that I do not know.
Maybe I should just contemplate and wait
As they say wisdom comes with age,
Until then I will leave my decisions to fate
Which is probably written on the very last page.
