for those troubled, wondering how
to make sense of troubled days,
progress through life’s complex maze.
Wisdom nourishes, gives peace,
love and hope, fulfilment’s feast;
though the way be hard, sustained,
and our hearts and minds re-trained.
Not acceptance thoughtless, blind –
it illuminates the mind,
sharpening our intelligence
so that what we see makes sense.
And Christ’s words are understood,
missing key to all that’s good,
when foundation stone’s in place
path through life and death we trace.
Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares … “How long you simple ones will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge. …whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure without fear of evil.”
Proverbs 1:20, 22, 32
