'Wisdom'

You have a brain full of wisdom
As powerful as the sun
Tender as watching the sunrise
Wondering if you can believe your eyes

When you turn around
To see the world fall to the ground
Learning from all your mistakes
Seeing how far away you've strayed

Strayed away into darkness
Holding yourself, thinking of softness
Soothing yourself with your tears
Becoming more afraid of your fears

Hoping they all go away
Trying to find the words to say
To preserve the meanings of life
With the search of a sacrifice

Sacrificing your knowledge to others
So they would not be smothered
Covered up by the lies, they have been told
Watching their lives unfold

Unfold in front of your eyes
Wondering will you realize
That you have a mind full of wisdom
As powerful as the sun

Wisdom is our salvation. However, it doesn't become apparent until you experience whatever it is you need to reach that conclusion. Nicely done, Amy - strong words and a powerful message. Linda :)
