Knowledge and wisdom

Knowledge may rise and set, with each passing generation

With a changing yardstick, unlike wisdom

And the light of the sun, burning with the same intensity

Whether seen or ignored, but they cannot be refuted

Knowledge is sourced, and it can be taught

Wisdom dawns within, it cannot be bought or stolen

Knowledge needs validation, widom offers it

Like air, wisdom cannot be hidden, but knowledge can

Wisdom is married to humility, knowledge may cavort with pride

Knowledge in action promotes the material, comforting for the body

When wisdom comes alive, it’s spiritual solace to the mind, and the soil

On which sprouts the tree of knowledge, it’s fruits are meant to be for all
