RUMORS.....


wisdom is rumored to have many
beginnings,
subject to so much interpretations
is this: that fear is the beginning of wisdom,
that fear of God
that fear of one who loves you so much
and whom you want to love but you
for so many times
failed,
that to some however, the beginning of wisdom is wonder.
and so at night
you walk outside the house of your dreams and you
gaze at the stars
and you are lost and you stumble and you hit your head upon a rock
and you are bleeding

that fear of God, that wonder that makes you bleed,
perhaps.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
