“Wisdom” is a word that describes knowledge,
knowledge that’s meant to be shared with others.
Wisdom is not something gained at college,
but given to one by their own mother.
Many people will study their whole lives,
but still never come close to having it,
and that is something that will give them strife.
Those with wisdom never asked; they don’t throw fits.
Wisdom comes to those who’ve lived a long life,
but not just lived life, but understood it all.
One part of wisdom is to choose your fights.
Wisdom’s knowing how to survive a fall.
It is not something you read in a book,
but is what you get when you stop and look.
