A Wise Man

A Wise Man It has been said that in the last Centry an American tourist, went to the City of Cairo in Egypt. It was with the intetion of visiting a famous WISE Man. The tourist hired a cab to take him to see this Wise Man. Everyone knew about him. The turist was surprised when the cab driver took him to a very poor side of town. Again the tourist was surprised to see that the Wise man lived in a very simple room. There was a lot of books and only very few pieces of furniture. A bed, a table a couple of chairs. Where is the furniture asked the tourist? The Wise Man asked where is yours? The turist answerd - I am just passing through. The Wise man answered - so am I. Life here on Earth is just Temperary, but people live like they are going to live here eternally. They forget to be happy.the value of things is not in how long they last, but the intensity of how they happen. That is the reason, why we have - unforgetable moments, unexplainable things and incomperable people. Remember this - God is not going to ask you - what kind of car you owned? He is going to ask you - How many people did you take in your car? God is not going to ask you - how many square feet did your house have? He is going to ask you - how many people did you recieve in your house? The tourist left. He didn't need to know anymore... 04/08/2013 Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo

    This is a true wise man my friend! You've got to value friends and family and your experiences of life not the things and material goods! I really liked how you had the wise man to say, "...God is not going to ask you - what kind of car you owned? He is going to ask you - How many people did you take in your car?..." this is so very true, God doesn't care about material things, but he cares about your heart! This poem sure shows that! A wise man indeed! Great Work!!
