Wisdom

Wisdom of thought and wisdom of speech
Wisdom of words and wisdom of deed
Wisdom that is learnt and wisdom inborn
Wisdom that make humans reform
Wisdom of age and wisdom of youth
Wisdom keeps us right going forth

Wise is the person learning from life
Wise are those who keep away from strife
Wise one does not need others to teach
Wise person does not unnecessarily preach

Bookish learning is not a pre-requirement for being wise
Observing nature and learning from life can get you the prize
An open mind to analyze and willingness to learn
Will provide the wisdom to be self sufficient and to earn

Remember Aesop’s story of the ants and the grasshopper
All the wisdom to be successful was buried inside there
Listening to the promises of the false prophets of Wall Street
Savings and loan scandal,dot-com bust, housing bubble resulted indeed

Wisdom is not a privilege of age nor a property of the sage
Learning is a lifelong process not bound by a cage
Ivy league education does not guarantee wisdom
Otherwise why  do we have so many political morons

Wisdom comes from learning to slow down and smell the roses
Treating others as you like to be treated and not creating foes
Learning when to open your mouth and what battles to pick
Learning to listen,analyze,understand and practice wisdom in deed

Wisdom will prevent us from being blind followers
Wisdom will guide us to find the true leaders
Wisdom will teach us not to   be bigots
Wisdom will show the path not to be zealots

Wisdom is a gift to cherish that will show us the light
Darkest moment of our life, wisdom will be shining bright

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
