BEING WISE


Being wise is about accepting
Accepting for losing
For in this world, nothing is immortal
Being wise is about forgiving
Even though it hurts our feeling
Being wise is about caring
Caring without asking for returns
Being wise is about giving
Giving without asking for taking back
Being wise is about sharing
Even it is only a piece of a little thing
Being wise is about listening
Even it consumes a lot of energy for thinking
Being wise is about learning
Learning to be a better person
Learning to be a better friend
Learning to be a better lover
Learning to be a better teacher
Learning to be a better mother, father, brother and sister
Being wise is about fairness
Fairness of judging between right or wrong
For in the right there is always an invisible wrong
As in the wrong there might be an invisible right
Being wise is about remembering
Remembering things that do not need for classifying
For in goods and bad, there is always a space for rethinking, reflecting, and learning

Just Home and Love! the words are small

The wide and gracious range of speech
