Seek Wisdom

Photo By: goccedicolore
Since when did we choose to become inevitably numb
Closing our eyes and ears like blind, deaf, and dumb
When did we start lowering the content of our words
To portray that we’re not as intellectual so that we can be heard
At which level do we decide to sacrifice our popular demand
Leaving the inheritance of our young to eat out of our hands
When did we lose the effectual wisdom of the greats
Where the social economy of knowledge would move from state to state
When did we decide to recklessly abandon clarity and understanding
When did intellect and wisdom became much too demanding
Who gave the verbal command to justify ignorance as a way to settle
Who said that life without reproach was okay to peddle
When did we begin to accept laziness without any refuse
To encourage lack as a way to diffuse
When will we begin to seek wisdom as a way to live
To know that lack of understanding is not an excuse to give
That we should search out the truth for every question
Trusting that the answers are not in complexion
But if you seek out wisdom that is what you’ll find
You’ll save yourself from devastation time after time
When we say that intelligence is square or lame
We deceive ourselves into remaining exactly the same
Only fools choose to not seek wisdom and grow
Those willing to adhere to instruction and reproof will flow
Like living waters from a well hidden deep underground
Reflecting wisdom as life highly profound
