The difference between wisdom and opinion

There is a common mistake
that many people make
what they think is wisdom
is only their opinion.

One may know the facts
and even trace its tracts
but it really may be fiction
wrapped in real conviction.

Opinion is self centric
although it be authentic
wisdom is whats best
what all parties may attest.

Wisdom will bring peace
though all will not be pleased
it may be inconvenient
but will always be expedient.

What is the true source
where wisdom has come forth ?
A Man who became Earthen
For Wisdom is a Person.
