The Wise and The Ignorant

July 9, 2010
Words for the wise

And silence for the ignorant.

Living life in silence

Is not truly living.

The wise know

Beauty, fame, money,

And the ignorant

Never even have a chance.

Sitting in a corner,

Behind a wall,

Waiting for the wall

To be broken down.

The wise

Assume they know better

If life is to go on,

They say,

We, the wise, must rule.

The ignorant

Can never be freed

From their prison

Of not knowing

What they could have,

What they could feel.

If only

The wise

Would know enough

To know to let them

Fly away and be free.

If only

The self proclaimed wise

Could learn to love.
