True wisdom cannot be bought or sold.
And you get a little wiser every year that you grow old.
If you squander all you have learned then what is it all worth.
For you can spread a little wisdom while still upon this earth.
Do not be afraid to share a piece of mind.
You can help a person out just by being kind.
So, when it is time to leave this planet earth,
you will know you have passed on something of worth.
