The Sanity


Diverse wisdom springs out from our brain

It pours down like raindrops,

It unceasingly gushes like a river,

Overflowing wisdom that cheers.

Sometimes it makes us grin or grumble

Wisdom for us to share and ponder on

It is made for us to commune,

Words that refreshes both body and spirit;

Expressing it adds vigor and wipes away despair.

Say only those words that bring healing not of fetid tongues!

Read and hearken those pleasant speeches,

Spread inspirational words

Not those that will ruin others.

How to express our God-given sanity?

Through written accounts and melody,

Like poetry, essay or a mere play!

It is by an adage and short story;

There’s a lot of ways!

Oftentimes, ambiguity haunts the mind

Those insights were blown by the wind.

How futile, those ideas vanished with time.

Only dim, vague memory left behind

Next time if given some wisdom,

Seized it before the wings of forgetfulness

Take them from our thoughts.

Gain nothing but regrets, for those pent-up words
