Seeking Wisdom~by Roxi St. Clair

…because the journey is within

Seeking Wisdom

mountaintop

Once upon a place in time,
from a distant forgotten land —
there, upon a mountain side,
dwelt a very wise old man.

I began to search for him,
it took me many years —
walking amid ancient land
despite my growing fears.

So when I had found this man,
my questions began to flow —
but for every question asked,
he answered, “I do not know.”

I replied, “I’ve searched for you!
Seeking wisdom without end —
a journey that took me places,
I otherwise, would not transcend.”

“I faced dangers beyond belief,
but somehow, made it through —
I often fell, only to rise again,
on this endless quest for you.”

The old man said, “Wisdom?
From beginning, and ever been —
comes not from any land afar,
but a destination from within.”
