Studies in Wisdom
Wisdom is the voice of the Lord whispering
In our ear,
Telling us the truths about ourselves that
We'd rather never hear.
Wisdom is the eye that sees the shadow
Of death behind
Our multitude of grandiose schemes and
Plans made by the blind.
Wisdom is the hesitation we sometimes feel right
Before we talk,
And the instinct that tells us it's often better
Simply to get up and walk.
Wisdom is the light within that illuminates
Our road ahead,
And shows us the twists and turns of fate,
And signs that we misread.
Wisdom is the common sense that crisis can
Bring on into play,
Convincing us in no uncertain terms to live
Only for this day.
