The Topic for today is: Who Or What is Wisdom to You?
“WHERE IS WISDOM” by Vernon J Davis Jr
He looks for Her…Everywhere
He does not see Her…Anywhere
He steps down from the Sky
His Footprints all over His World
Impressions left of His search for Her
He asks…Has anyone seen Her
Has anyone found Her
Kept her safe…For Him
His Voice bellows Her Name
Carried by the wind spiralling deep within our minds
Of Her Relationship with Him
Without Her…Who of us is saved,
She was with Him…Always
But not Always with us
Where is Wisdom…Have You found Her?
