They need it, they ask for it, they get it, they ignore it.

All my pearls of wisdom,

experiences I have learned,

are lost in your own mind,

your choice that they are spurned.


Advice from winning ways,

a list of not to do's,

a lessons path that clears the way,

ignored, you failed to choose.


Here it is A . B . C,

no guessing, all spelled out,

the logical formula,

the best approach no doubt.


Think you have it, but you don't,

you're stubborn as a mule,

bad decisions, or just none,

ignoring golden rules.


All my pearls of wisdom,

experiences I have learned,

are lost in your own mind,

your choice that they are spurned.

Last lines are sobering.

Heard someone once say that wisdom really comes from experiences in life, along with understanding. Even though my father was an atheist he agreed with the Bible's 10 commandments and of course the golden rule. He stated that if your going to follow anything, the bible would be the best book to follow.
Reviewed by John Domino 10/5/2013
The Bible is called: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
Now that's wisdom, man is but a fool. Amen

Peace, Love and Christ Blessings,

John Michael

Wisdom is all around us, but we are fools.

Very good, Michael. I can feel it's very personal. Has some, resentment in it, therefore a point of view.
Reviewed by Jane Noponen Perinacci 10/4/2013
I had a wise old teacher in high school who would say quite often, "Experience is a hard school but fools will learn in no other." That may be applied I believe in this case to whomever is hearing but not listening.

Love ya!
