I Wonder About Wisdom

I wonder about wisdom, for I see wisdom in disguise
When people think they know it all, and thusly think they're wise.

Brains and wisdom are not necessarily linked, for only the wise discern
That wisdom comes from knowing...there's still so much to learn.

...only the wise discern... It seems as time goes by, more people reject wisdom.
For me wisdom is the proper application of whatever life has taught. And no one can know it all. Wisdom is based more on skill and grace than on learning. Nice poem.
