The Wise One

The wise one came to me today
Sharing gifts from other planes
Tempting me with knowledge
Placing wisdom in my veins
 
He told of sorrow’s longing
For those who’ve paid a price
It’s not always a consequence
Of how we roll the dice
 
Sometimes it’s fate, sometimes it’s not
But easy for us to tell
We pay too little attention
To the ringing of the bell
 
The brightened light can blind us
Yet we look to blame the rest
Taking blame for what we do
Is difficult to digest
 
Then he spoke of wiser things
Like how we treat each other
Greater things expand the love
Than lies to one another
 
He said that love is all there is
There’s nothing else that matters
If love prevailed throughout the world
We’d watch the darkness shatter

Help love prevail…
