Some of us have it
cause we are
born with it
but some of us
don't but
wish we did.

I'ts a curse for most
and also a
power for all.

Wisdom is what
we all want and need.
We crave it like a fat
kid craves cake
or a nympho
craves sex.

Wisdom is a part
of us if we know it
or not.

The life we live and
the struggles we face
make us wise so
we can help our children
and some day our
grandchildren through
their struggles that
they might face.

Never think of
wisdom as a curse
but as a tool to help
the next generation.
