wisdom

wisdom poem by steven james humphreys

we may search for the truth

and comb the world

but, I’m afraid

that although wisdom

may reside in other men

that the only truth

resides within us

and once we decide

it’s not out there

we are left to our own ends

within ourselves

and when we pray

we pray to our own

being down within

the murky obscure depths

of which we must trust

that faith and only by faith

will our prayers be answered.
