Poem : Wisdom

Wisdom!

Are you a wise

Human being

Or one that

no one was

able to help

make you

a believer

Are you the

same as

most others

Playing smart

But not being

too clever?

Are you one

Who pretends

To be very

smart today.

Having no clue

don’t know

A thing about

what you would

possibly be

Tomorrow

But here you

are watching

a giant

flat screen

TV.

There is this

wise guy

Terrorizing

your mind


Using this, his

commercial

Ability

And it’s true

You are one

of those

Who allows him

To sell you

Anything!

A cat in a bag

He even

Sold you.

A bicycle

with no wheels.

Here I am

asking you

What did you

see?

Your only

answer was

nothing!

It happened!

During the

commercial

On TV.

Was the light

in there

A little dim?

Because now

He has you

on The road

Taking that thing

For a Spin!

Do you know?

That everything

Of which

you are now

Dreaming

They are

actually

Already here

Can’t you not

Hear then

Calling.

It’s not here

with You

At this very

said moment

And you are

not in it’s

physical

Presence

But do you

Remember

Those times

When only

his/her smile

Signaled to you

Love

Does this here

not bear

That very same

Resemblance?

There you were

With little or no

Experience

Falling for what

You believed was

Love!

Are you a wise

Human being

Giving up your

Heart.

Long before

push had even

agreed

That it was time

For him

turning to shove.

Would you say

That’s

Wisdom!

Thank you phdast. Well maybe for you who I know works hard because of what you do, using up every corner of your being. I remember going to school was difficult , but because of not having that selfish bone , I was always curious to find out about teachers.

Sop I asked of course, and what I gathered was teaching itself was easy , but being a great teacher, for sharing and helping others , is actually a sacrifice and love.

Good to see you doing little reading, and thanks for the lovely comment.

I will be there soon , the artist lady poem stays with me she was a fine one.

Bless. Just In case may the Most High God protect and keep you and yours and bless you all with great health.

I believe.

Bless.

Hard questions requires wise answers. This piece makes one think. I like it.. If a person listens and buys into all the GREAT deals out there, he's not so wise.....I like Marley's beat...

Thank you mrslagibb, always great to hear from you early in the mornings.The early bird does catch the great worm.See you caught a laugh.

I kept leaving out the a in your name. lol. I don't get offended easily in life , what I have grown to understand, even as I am listening to Celine Dion. Offence in lack of the truth. And the truth is only a question away.

Hoping that a great New Year is in store for you as it starts today.

You gifts are priceless.

Bless.

Can I have that T.V. whats on for sale at $200 lol. These days, nobody has regards for anyones life or belongings, so long they just get what they can get out of others. MAGNIFICENT WORK AGAIN SKY. No Dis-respect to your illustration about the T.V., It did make me laugh alittle. But it does make a point on how some people are.

To me Wisdom is only the Truth.
