Knowledge The Root Of Wisdom

by Credo (writer), I practice living in the Spirit, August 18, 2013

Trials And Tribulations Can Sometimes Teach A Wealth Of Wisdom.


The cascading rivers, like tastefully aged wine.

Can a tree live without its roots?

Can a man be a husband without his wife?

How seductive, how beautiful, how divine

Can a bird fly without its wings?

Nay as I suspect, nay, for without it we can not find our rest.



Its benevolent scenery lodging deep within the eye's mind.

Shall a shadow survive without its contrastive light?

Nay, for we are mere figures in the night.

The life of Sebastian has followed us home , it would seem we've fallen at our own behest.


Life! Once tasted, forever relevant, forever sublime.

How may a shadow survive without the light?

Nay, not without the light to guide us to our sight

This lucid image can never be stolen or involved in a crime.

It can never be purchased, it can only be won in time.

Calm peaceful surface, underneath, a storm, it is the rage of life

Truly grateful for your support!

I've always found poetry a fascinating writing format, but never felt comfortable enough to tackle it myself. I will certainly make a serious effort to try an improve my understanding of poetry.

Thank you for giving me the courage to take the first step.

Hey! I can't work if my head swells up. [smile]

I appreciate those sentiments, nevertheless I will be practicing regularly. Poetry gives me another outlet, perhaps a more relaxed one. I have so many controversial stories and tough information it is sometimes difficult to reveal such secrets.
