Being Wise


In life we may be asked to be-friend
both a fool and a wise one.

The fool will smile and charm us,
take our gifts, ask for more, break their word,
and soon leave to find others to manipulate.

Be always kind.

A wise one asks for nothing, shares
whatever they have
and vows eternal friendship.

Be grateful to the fool
for they have served as a teacher
and you have learned who NOT to become.

Pray for them.

To the wise one, offer friendship,
pray together and begin to build
a universal community of good
with a loving foundation.

Are you a fool or a wise one?
