Wisdom

I’ve been wise in my own eyes. Intellect.
 	Eyes shut not wanting to let light interject, and it’s dark.
	I can’t see, thus I’m sent walking with a blindfold.
	And I hold, my own understanding.
	Landing in the palace of pride. 
	Remove this log from my eye
	I beg freedom
	Wanting to leave simple ways behind me.
	The days that you’ll find me walking in understanding.
	Acknowledging a sacred friend.
	Wisdom. I invite you in.
	Would you make yourself at home while I agree to your decisions.
	I’m ready to give you my mindset
	Shatter it and cut with great precision.
	Welcome. You’re altogether wise, and I’m not.
	How we’ve hung time and again before 
	But now I open up the door because I need more
	And I’m tired of caressing a counterfeit. Logic.
	And I can’t see.
	So you point me towards my table
	Asking for a rag to wipe off these affections.
	Now that it’s clean, you set before me your correction
	First lesson. She says, you must eat right,
	For my mouth speaks what is true.
	I talk, you listen. I rebuke, you move.
	So I pay attention.
	In yielding to her precision while she cuts.
	Pride steady screaming this sucks, but I must hear.
	So I draw near.
	Not knowing if I’d be left breaking with tears
	But I’ve invited you
	You’ve wanted to speak with me but I’ve had walls
	Those in which you’ll now bring down
	So I stand as light interjects, setting the table with freedom.
	Folly and pride, I don’t need them
	I need you. Stay with me.
	Make wise my heart.

    Hi Keisha! Congratulations on having this excellent poem featured on the front page here at the Soup. I read in Psalms that wisdom was with God in his youth, and that they basically grew up together. It's very interesting, I think it was Psalms 8, Lovely poem, and already I see your wisdom shining through. hugs, Catie :)

    This is an awesome write..a great testimony here as well. Wow, you actually made my day with this one...The greatest feeling is recognizing your faults and willing to do something about it..Although no one is perfect..Yet he knows your Heart...And we have to let him lead and guide us. A way to gain wisdom and to hear from him is to read his word and act on it..enjoyed!!

    Very epic write! A painter is like a composer, and the question is the quest for understanding a reality beyond the self portrait.

    this poem is about how we try to be in control of our own lives but it doesnt work out well. Then we realize that God has been trying to speak and we allow him to take over by showing us his way, the right way, in the end.
