Wisdom of the Ages

In life we Grow and Go in our own ways, we are influenced by many, many things. Wisdom or the Lack of, is not to say one is not wise, just ill or UN-informed on specifics subjects.

Wisdom, Lack, Knowlege, and Faith Comes and Goes with Age


Some guys find all that they Lack
Some find all that they can
Some never feel the breath of death or

The clutch of his fiendish hands

Some see Joy wherever they look
This lot is truly happy
By hook or crook

Some find Love whenever they can
Some think they have found it in
The bottom of an aluminum can

Some hold to Love and never let it slip
Others have let lose their grip
And later have become sick

Happiness is Only an Illusion They Say

But, I would say it is an Illumination
See the Creator sends what you truly want
What you speak, think, and seek

You may be able to lie to yourselves if you wish
But, the Universe is not a miss
It delivers as it is told and has done so

Since The Days of Old
Since then the ancient of times has delivered
To every child or heavenly son

Are You Bold Enough are You Old Enough?

Who is bold enough?
Who is old enough?
To seek and speak to their wants

To understand what it is to be a man
One must first understand how it all began
There is so, so much that is yet, to be discovered

Catch a hold of Joy if you can
Hold it in the palms of your hands
Keep her always in front of your mind

Listen to the whisperings of the Grand Design
Better yet, seek out Love however you go
Only with this do you begin to grow

Love and Joy Begets Happiness

When you have learned how to
Catch onto these slippery Two
Happiness is no longer, but a dream

My friend it is, has now become your plan
And with them firmly in your grasps
Your Happiness begins to last

True there is much gold within the Golden Rules
But, more precious is the Wisdom of life
Finer than Rubies, Frankincenses, and Muir

These two are more precious then the finest of gold
Wisdom and Knowledge and not often known of men
Only Heavenly Beings have begun again

To Know Who Stands at Your Side With Every Step You Make

To know who stands at your side
And has often times carried you on
Is Knowledge that defeats every fear

Knowledge worth more than any earthly worth
Oh some may say it is a Universal Law
The Law of Supply and Demand

A Cosmic Draw which our Universe supplies
But, why would they say that when
They know that Father is the Man

Oh, I digress it is in this that they over stress the "ours"
In Our Fathers Universe
True we are all spoiled

Some of us to our core
And Heaven sent or should
I say from Heaven sent?

I Sail My Own Ship On the Open Sea

I sail my own ship on the open sea
With an ever expanding Horizon in front of me
The night chases my stern as I flee

With my bow pointed to the setting of the sun
My sails all set three sheets to the wind
My course I had plotted from my birth

As I have set to sea to seek my worth
Though we had all failed at our first attempt
I have been given a second chance

By the Grace of God there go I
To seek the Shores of Heaven once more
To stand solid on her Golden shores

My One an Only Want for this New Day

Is to catch a Gail force wind to speed me on my way
One that will take me directly to my golden shores
Before this Great Ocean expands once more

For I know that Life is unending
And with every breath Our Father makes
That she grows a few phantoms more

But, until that triumphal day when
Bow meets shore I will hold unto Love
And clutch Joy in the palms of my hands

For the wisdom I have gained
I have gotten on bended knee
As I talked with my Father


Who has given me
A Platinum and Diamond encrusted key
For now I know that

My Saviour sails along side of me

Thank you Songbird B, for your read and comment. As I have been down and out this last few weeks or months it seems I search the inner being's connections and want others to know that not every one has a true grip on what is real or what is an illusion we all have such feelings at times, but if we hold to certain Truths or beliefs we fair better than when we don't thanks again Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Thank you Maria Malone, And if I forgot to say hi, hello and glad to see you here at wikinut. Poetry is my mainstay I guess, but I should, brush up on my English skills considering it is my native language. Please don't be to judgmental of my lack of constancy or spelling as some Teachers are. I know I lack in certain areas and I do try at times to fix these weaknesses and I often recheck my writes. I see there are a lot of English Majors and Teachers here at wikinut a great opportunity to make friends and help our other writers and myself if you Like to edit others works, Thanks again for the read and comments Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

What a lovely poem about your description of life. We all have expectations, but being happy is the most important thing for me, as we all have only one life to live.

Thank you Carol, But most of all to love and to be loved this I would agree in, that true Happiness is and where it is found. Life is this life that we are experiencing? I think not, but I think this is only a form of Life that we once held and was stolen from us, as candy from a child. I have much faith in the Christian's story that the Bible and their Scriptures tell. And I derive much of what I know and feel from them, their stories, their history, and their beliefs Thanks for the read and the comments Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Thanks for sharing these views in poetic style. Hillel once commented that the golden rule is the essence of the scriptures--all the rest is commentary. ;)

Hillel, the great Jewish Sage of Herod's time? "and all else is an explanation go and learn" yes the Golden Rule is all and all a completion of the Torah. I to think IF only we would live by such a singular rule. Thank you for the read and the inquisitive comment Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Hi Sinbad, I thought you were alluding to a lot of different things here, and reading some of your comments, I see that you are. I loved these, they were alive, organic and truly inspiring :D

Who me Greenfaol, A want to be Poet allude or alluding any others Oh please say it isn't so LOL We poets' all have hidden agendas or at least messages, on that I would agree, but sometimes as I have written I do not think it is I that concocts these writes, but they often do have much of me in them like yeast in bread I would imagine. Thank you for the read and comments Donnie/Sinbad the Sailor Man

Thank you Steve Kinsman, Yes I understand them all I understand that these concepts were long ago known of by Gods chosen people. This is not a new vision the Law of Attraction it is just one that has been repackaged and promoted Much like all the spiritualist still trying to leave GOD out. It is not a wise choice this leaving God out! I have come to know this after years of trying to do it myself. Thanks for the read and the comment Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Now you have me blushing chellanglo, that or it is time to take my blood pressure medicine. The Golden Keys I truly wonder if I can't hold on to my earthly keys what on earth shall I do with my spiritual keys? I need one of those key rings that you can whistle for and the alarm goes off so you can find them. I am always miss placing my keys everywhere I go, Thanks for the Read and comment Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Although I broke the poem apart I did mean for it to be one complete poem, Chas Williams, Ultimately we all become this captain of our on ship. Sail it well and sail it hard for she can take It! Three Sheets to the wind, full sails ahead and may the sun be always at your back as you head towards the Son.

Only we fools Phoenix Montoya, only we fools have the true wisdom of God's angels within our grasps. God uses the weak and foolish to confound those that claim wisdom here in this span of time or in this dimension. I try to claim I have none, but that which is given to me through these angels and the Comforter Him self. Which often times makes me more foolish then I already am. thanks for the read and comment Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Finally it feels really good to have myself back on your piece of writing and I feel really happy after having read ur stupendous thought donnie!
So true it is that knowledge and wisdom are those precious gems which belittle every other obstacle and fear and materialism!
IF we acquire them wer through through thick and thin easily deeming every problem to be am exam from our Lord and thus passing it or atleast trying to pass it with flying colors!
but to our dismay we only focus on achieving only degrees rather learning something and practicing it out, rather than trying to improve ourselve via the knowledge we seemingly gain!!!
Thanx alot for sharing donnie, we share the same thought over this one and I am really happy and contended over that!
Thanx once again and sorry for taking lots of ur space

Ah there you is Humza, I have been very busy and I am looking for extra time that I can not seem to Find. For to read others and their works. I have all this month been in and out of the Hospital with Loved ones who are being afflicted in some way. Wisdom and Knowledge of God and His ways are the true golden and silver gems or the Monterey devices used where I am desiring to go and Live forever Humza. I missed you early on in this write, so glad to see you here today. Hope All is well with you and yours and that God has carried you onward and forward to your Hopes and Dreams. It is always a treasure and a pleasure to see you upon my pages Friend. We will all need to find brothers and sisters of like minds and thoughts they are what makes this life worth the toil of the planting and harvesting of the wheat or Should I say. Preparing it to be harvested.
I am always watchful for the two that have been promised to come. I am wondering If they could possibly be poets themselves? I hope I will recognize their truth when they arrive. Have a blessed day Humza, May God lead and Keep you all the days of your life and yours as well. And you write a book if you so desire or if you are led to. My Friend I have plenty of space here in my comment sections. LOL Thank you Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Thank You Very Much Humza, That is what it is all about, staying healthy both physically and mentally. I am always glad to see posts at my writes and poems and at the rest of our wikinut writers writes and poems. I do like this community our little family of writers and poets, Misery loves company and I am no different then the rest of those here. I would write even if no one ever saw what it is that I have written, but I much rather it be seen and shared. Have a good day Humza, Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man
