What is wisdom without the weight of age?
I say, it is fleeting and floating,
Obtained through elders alone and
by quiet watchfulness.
An exquisite gift indeed,
for persevering youth to learn and grow.
And therefore clothed in modesty
through secret acts of kindness.
Age creates wisdom—as long as
openness and intuition be.
And time sides with wisdom,
as age is her patient tool.
