The Sage

Wisdom is earned through many years Built on heartaches, trials and tears For it takes a lifetime to become a sage Growing ever wiser each day they age There's not many things that they haven't seen Their bodies grow older, their minds staying keen With answers to questions that we haven't learned Working each day for the wisdom they've earned Sometimes we think that their just out of touch But they've seen it all and we haven't seen much Sometimes we say that they don't understand But the things that we know has come from their hand Teaching us things through the stories they tell Some will grow wiser, while others will fail Wisdom is something that cannot be bought For time is our teacher, it can only be taught
