SOCRATES IS ALIVE

SOCRATES IS ALIVE

 

Let him who would move
The world first move
Himself.
For what lies behind us and
What lies ahead of us are tiny matters
Compared to what lives within us,
Wisdom.

And to do great things is difficult,
Except we live together as brothers,
We’ll perish together as fools,
Wisdom.

Socrates is alive,
So the fable is a lie
Cos In the minds of young mind,
Wisdom speaks to puddled ears
Our Fathers proverb,
Wisdom.

I know one sage in my varsity,
His knowledge is bigger than
The whole of Athen.
Ever heard about “The Ojay”?,
He’s a reality that leaves a lot to
The imagination of our knowledge,
Wisdom.

Socrates is alive!
It’s not the strength,
But the duration of great sentiments
That makes great men,
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
