    Is it any wonder
    That the world is filled with pain,
    When man sets aside its beauty,
    For his own material gain?

    Is it any wonder
    That lovers' hearts grow dim,
    When they do not hold in honor,
    The love that's found within?

    Is it any wonder
    That the homeless often fail,
    When they're forced out of house and home
    To seek another trail?

    Is it any wonder
    That nature falls to ruin and rubble,
    Because we drain it thoughtlessly,
    Allowing it to crumble?

    Is it any wonder
    That children go astray,
    Because we did not take the time,
    To show them the proper way?

    Is it any wonder
    That evil's strong and bold,
    When we can't see any goodness,
    And we let our hearts grow cold?

    Is it any wonder
    Racism thrives, my friend,
    When we cannot see the person,
    Just the color of his skin?

    Is it any wonder
    That friendships die and fade,
    When we forget the reasons,
    Why they first were made?

    Is it any wonder
    Our world has been polluted,
    When we allow our industries,
    To strip it and permute it?

    Is it any wonder
    There's so much grief and sorrow,
    That we don't even seem to care,
    What will take place tomorrow?

    Is it any wonder
    We see no value in our brothers,
    And we hold ourselves too far above,
    The many needs of others?

    Is it any wonder
    Our world is like it is,
    When all we do is grumble,
    And no action do we give?

    Is it any wonder
    We wait in fear of Judgment Day,
    When we do the things we do,
    Then forget the way to pray?

    It was of course one of mine, before I reached enlightenment...

    anyway, now I stop trying to change the outer things. I changed my inner perception and the outer revealed the beauty so long obscured by my own attitude.

    Wisdom

    The 3 aspects of wisdom are ordinary worldly wisdom, lesser transcendent and highest transcendent wisdom. The first covers all the many sorts of worldly wisdom which "we" called Art, all the studies of which are covered by 10 topics, five of which are minor and five of which are major. The five minor disciplines are: poetry (and rhetoric) , astrology, terminology ( including grammar), dramatic art and etymology.

    Poetry basically means the expression of things in a pleasant way and in a way that enables others to feel as we do, even if they are not in that particular situation, themselves..

    The rest I will skip here, as no doubt you are interested in the 5 major disciplines. Well considering those are off-topic, and not wanting to cause any more gravity waves, I will also consider them as off-topic and skip those too.

    .. Also I spell color, colour. That u is important, as you will later find out.
