If Given A Choice

If given a choice between wisdom and beauty I’d have to choose wisdom out of pure sense of duty. Duty will call me to be all that I can And wisdom will aid in my service to man. While wisdom is there to be used every day, Beauty is fleeting in a physical way. Wisdom is solid – has so many uses While beauty just lies there, spouting excuses. Yet, beauty has value that wisdom will seek And wisdom is silent when others might speak. Silence is golden and down through the years I have seen wisdom prevent beauty’s tears I hope in your traverse through life here on Earth Through eyes of beholders you see wisdom’s worth.

    totally love this poem Jake......definitely wisdom over beauty anyday....well in terms of the human beauty. Nature's beauty oh the other hand...fits in the wisdom category lol. Human physical beauty is just a shallow exterior which is short lived :) gr8 message in your poem and I love the flow too! - Shaz
