April A to Z blogging challenge Wisdom

April A to Z blogging challenge Wisdom


‘Wisdom comes with age,’ it’s said,
But what age must I reach
Before perception fills my head
And thoughts precede my speech?

With every passing year I find
I’m child-like yet and silly,
While others educate their minds
I’m still just froth and frilly.

I should be wise by now, you see,
It’s showing in my teeth,
But though I may look ninety-three
I’m eighteen underneath.

  3. Yes...I so identify with this! I still get too giddy about life to ever be deemed wise, and also feel young inside, despite how my aching body belies that rumour. LOL...:)

  4. I love the poem, too, but I think Isabel is probably right. Remaining young underneath is very wise. I think I'm 32, but I look 64. LOL
