Wisdom And Knowledge

        The wise listen to increase their learning,
        Where the scorners of wisdom close their mind.
        The hearts of the prudent gather knowledge,
        For a soul without grace becomes confined.

        Our knowledge can help us fulfill our dreams,
        Though most of the time with wisdom comes grief.
        For knowledge removes our veil of ignorance,
        Exposing within the liar or thief.

        A wise mind is a fountain of life;
        To teach others it's knowledge before death.
        Wisdom is too hard for fools to retain,
        Who curse their fellows with spiteful breath.

        Fill yourself with love and understanding,
        For wisdom makes the human face shine.
        Knowledge is stronger than weapons of war,
        While on ignorance, fools continue to dine.

        The words of the wise are heard in quiet,
        More than the loud shouts of screaming fools.
        Wisdom and knowledge cause stability,
        In the lives of those who use them as tools.

        We should shun with wisdom what is evil,
        And glorify with knowledge what is good.
        Better is the gift of learning than gold
        For by virtue we become what we should.
