RUN TO WISDOM

Updated on October 25, 2011

Run to wisdom everytime !

You believe that I run.

But I always answer

when wisdom calls!

I don’t run

I have learned

Not to stand and fight

A loosing battle.

See how goats

gets gathered in

a heard

If you will look

little further

What you 'll see

standing in the

shadows

Will be me.

I am the Shepard.

I don’t run

Am old enough

to know

When it’s time to

Walk away

Too old to be

still saying

If only I had

known.

At this age

While you stand

there paying

homage to sickness

your disease.

Waiting only

to argue, fuss

and fight

I would quickly

Use my wisdom.

To disappear

Move out of sight

“Can’t fight a ghost”

I don’t run

I am adult now

So I am expected

to act as such.

But I also understand

That asking this

of others

May simply be

asking too much.

Mother always

says to me

Son there is a time

for everything

under the sun

Presently that’s

where I am sitting

exposed

As I felt the rain,

But I know

that at the first sign

Of inclemency

As I hear the

thunder

I won’t wait for

Lightening

To know that

it’s time to run.

I don’t run

When things are

Not correct

Wisdom says

Do what it takes

To make it right.

You don’t necessarily

have to run

But it’s dark here

Maybe you can’t see?

Go to that place

where there is light

I don’t run

Some usually say

Once a man

But I know

There is still a child

Living inside him

Put too much weight

On your horse

Then it’s that donkey

You will have to ride.

I never run to hide!

Blessings and Give Thanks.

      Thanks you my brethren Frank.

      Thanks for reading and sharing your feelings in the comments.

      Just like you said and honest comment of any dept , beats all on hub page that's tells you a lie.

      I pledge to sincere reading and commenting, after all if someone gives me their best, fairness and sincerity would require me to give back even more.

      In life you would reap just what you sow , nothing less and nothing more . But we must remember that a one eyed man is king in a blinds man territory.

      When I read your best , all that should come from me is the best that I have, and from there can only be growth.

      Here is not for the money for me, it's for the exercise and the money I hope they are saving somewhere for me. But my books don't refuse any lines that I write. Good or bad , well who'd to say . But I understand what here is all about so it's . One Love !

      Run to wisdom.

      Blessings Frank.
