It is often so simple.

On Wisdom

by Scotti Lee

what is wisdom
wisdom can be so very elusive,
at the center it narrows into a mere choice
to learn how to use experience to enhance humanity
to know the rippling impact finite actions have on infinity
to grasp how to fuse the heart and brain together
to desire growth and change even when it stings
to develop and evolve for the greater good of the whole
to accept that at your own center you are a flawed individual
to will your bones to be introspective,
scouring for the most minute tangles with a fine-toothed comb.
