        How wise you are you will reveal by how
        You choose to use your energy and time,
        For only what’s of value will allow
        Your claim to finding wisdom’s paradigm.

        To know what’s valuable and realize
        In word and deed what is of greatest worth
        Is how you demonstrate that you are wise
        And by your ways improve life on this Earth.

        Yet that’s more easily proclaimed than done,
        For folly always stands in wisdom’s way,
        Temptations to undo what was hard won,
        Leaving our former glories to decay.

             Do always then what is most valuable,
             For only that way can your life be full.
