Be Wise My Friend

My friend, there is so much inside your brain
But don’t let your knowledge be brought to vain.
Pride is there seeking to destroy your day
But my friend never let it block your way.
Never tell that you possess all knowledge
And never escape from protection’s hedge.
Hold your tongue if holding it is needed.
Be humble and you’ll always be splendid.
All who are wise can still say, “I don’t know”
If the required answer they cannot show.
It is never foolish to say you’re wrong
Because admission can make you stand strong.
Let’s show the world what intelligence is.
Let’s oppose deception’s philosophies.
