Questions Poem by Jacinta Magwood

What does it mean to be wise? How does one become wise?
These are the things I want to hear.
How does one become wise if all they know are lies? How does one become brave if all they know is fear?
Does it make them the wise over the liers?
Does it make them the wise over the fearful?
These are the things I want to hear.

If the wise are suppossed to seek and speak the truth, how can this be so?
If this is true, are there different categories of wise people?

The wise of the liers
The wise of the fearful
The wise of the murdurers
The wise of the givers, lovers, haters?
The wise of the poor
The wise of the wealthy; of every aspect of
life or emotion?

Is this so, can there really be a wise person of murderers?
Or are they just deceivers witnessing their thoughts and aspects
to their justifyed group of people?
These are the things I want to hear, but there's one I want to Know.
Do I......want to be wise?
