Wisdom Poem

We want more likes

More followers

More selfies

Not wisdom.


We want more money

More food

More affections

Not wisdom.


Wisdom is not valued

Nor treasured

Or loved

It is a paper thrown away

It is a bird ignored when it's flying past.


It is not a commodity we praise

Or look for,

We discard it when its inconvenient

Or irrelevant to our social network.


It is better to be dumb than wise

This is message from society,

Those that proclaiming to be wise

Let their ego rule

So they become unbearable.


What hope do we have in this day in age

For wisdom has changed face

To be wise a label

Not a spiritual aspiration.
