Wisdom derived from what we see
Absorbing it daily as we live,
Experiences rapidly accumulate
Teachable moments every one.
What power comes from all of this?
Knowledge for our minds to hold,
Interpreting what it really means
Discerning values that we feel.
Power when this wisdom comes
In actions for the highest good,
New intentions for what is right
Many paths are not easy to tread.
Developing wisdom in our lives
Source of learning who we are,
Power in knowing what is true
Most important values we can have.
