Where Is Wisdom Found

Where Is Wisdom Found

A Poem by peter Duggan
"

Does wisdom come from holy books or is it something we find with the inner search?

"

Where is Wisdom Found

 

I ask you where is wisdom found

Is it through reading ancient books

Or believing other people’s words

Maybe we need to take our own look

Belief or real experience

What one of these, then should we trust?

When we were young and innocent

Many beliefs were at us thrust

 

A child so very young, I ask

Should he then in fool’s words bask

Or should he find his own damned way

And  so find growth in each new day

If folk don’t know why would they teach

When the truth it is out of their reach

The only way we can find out

Is don’t except, just welcome doubt

 

This world is filled with falsities

They promise us that we’ll find bliss

If we believe, but if we doubt

We’ll know what hell is all about

Well me, I don’t believe at all

I just know life is beautiful

And I don’t care about tomorrow

I’ll face the goodness, or the sorrow

It is amazing to think that the worlds prophets were all 'trailblazers' who may or may not have built upon what they were taught in their youth but in the main they 'wrote the book' instead of reading it based on their internal thoughts.
Sobering too...

Excellent title and very enjoyable poetic deliberations here Peter.
