Finding Wisdom

by Douglas Paul

It's not enough to just observe,
for vision will not strike the nerve
that sends the meaning deep within
where understanding may begin.

A flash of insight is required
into this life which we've acquired.
The obvious is not the key
and will not set our spirits free.

It's in the quiet of our mind,
it's in our efforts to be kind,
it's in compassion we may see
a glimmer of eternity.

For those attempting to be wise
must penetrate the truth's disguise,
must question all the things they know
and delve into the doubt below.
