Wisdom prefers what is sure and secure
Whatís been tested and tried in the fire
But the Youth of today have their own special way
To show passion and drive and desire

Youth will declare, thereís a party out there
Donít you trust me, they say with a grin
Then old Wisdom cries out, thereís a danger about
If your caution is thrown to the wind

Wisdom has always presented the case
That without it, youíll get in a jam
But Youth arenít afraid to fall on their face
While theyíre playing the fool or the ham

The Wisdom of Age is a wonderful thing
And so is the Passion of Youth
One points to the sadness that folly can bring
While the other is wrestling with truth

Age says, we have always done it this way
While the Youth are calling for change
Age can get stuck in a rut any day
While the Youth have vision and range

Both Wisdom and Passion contribute to Life
But balance each day is the key
What good is your butter without any knife
Or your teacup without any tea

The Young and The Old - The Calm and The Bold
Are important with something to share
Each one must rely on their piece of the pie
As they work as a team and a pair

So listen to older and younger alike
Learn all that you can from them both
May your journey on Earth be a glorious hike
With Passion And Wisdom And Growth !!!

1 Timothy 4:12
Let no one look down on your youthfulness,
but rather in speech, conduct, love faith and purity,
show yourself an example of those who believe.

Proverbs 2:6
For the Lord grants Wisdom! His every word is a
Treasure of Knowledge and Understanding.
