The Thing About Wisdom… by Lexi Morgan

Posted: January 13, 2015 by Lexi in LexiM2015, Uncategorized

In every heart, something says
“Love. What have you got to lose?”
And everything becomes vivid,
Beautiful.
Every rush of wind, a whisper.
Every thing, magic.
In every heart, something says
“Love.”

Also in every heart, something says
“Be wary. Think of what you have to lose.”
And everyone becomes cruel,
Selfish.
Every kind word, a joke.
Every thing, false.
In every heart, something says
“Be wary.”

The trick is in knowing,
Which is wise?

    This is an amazing piece! I love the question the poem asks at the end. It really makes me stop and think, “which one am I?” Brilliant! šŸ™‚
