Drinking Wisdom

I went to the wilderness 
By following her voice
I drank from her wisdom
A cup chosen by choice

Preconception abandoned
I went with a clean mind
Predudices, experiences
Often make me blind

Love the replacement
In a World wracked with pain 
Hate is often chosen
Over and over again

A few make a difference
Love spreads flavor like salt
If some of us begin helping
It won't matter who's at fault

    Well stated Richard! I like the idea of drinking in wisdom. Wisdom and Knowledge in action is needed to combat the ills that ail the world. The idea of collective responsibility resonates well with wanting to heal the world. Nice job!

    Wolves hunt in packs, lions hunt in prides.if we''re going to survive we need to push our differences aside.

    "Love spreads flavor like salt", loved this verse, salt is the key of taste, without salt all food end in plain, as same as life without love ~> plain :D
