The bitter price of wisdom

Posted: January 28, 2016 in Poetry

Wisdom comes at a bitter price,
The last gift before one’s tragic demise
Even a fool at the last moment knows his folly
In this life only the heartless know glory
They take, they fake without any compunction
Unstoppable forces, so intent on destruction.

But the best people are always cursed to dream
Never knowing things ain’t what they seem
They carry their hearts on their fringy sleeve
Prone to jump head head-first until they grieve
Listen and learn then what this life’s greatest truth is;
The innocent and the foolish all end up in anguish
Down the drains, we all know what wisdom means.
