    Description:
       this is like a mantra for me, it is rapped over a DR Dre beat and i know it by heart, it took alot of research from the bible and other famous quotes from anon or famous people and changed them to make them my own, i know it is long, any tips would be appreciated, please comment...

    WISDOM
    (please print me and keep me safe)

    THERE ARE 6 BILLION PATHS TO WISDOM IN THIS YIN YANG LAND
    MANY WAYS TO CLIMB A MOUNTAIN, A MEDICINE, MANY BRANDS
    THERES ADVICE TO LIVE BY AND WISE WORDS LIKE PEARLS
    FROM THE PROVERBIAL ANONYMOUS TO THE FAMOUS IN OUR WORLD
    USE THIS QUOTE AS AN ANTIDOTE, WISDOM LEAVES FEAR CHOKED
    AND GIVES YOU HOPE IN WHAT I WROTE WHETHER YOU'RE RICH OR YOU'RE BROKE
    LIKE THE FOOL ALWAYS WONDERS WHILE THE WISE MAN TRAVELS
    ITS NOTE APPAREL THAT MAKES THE MAN BUT THE MAN THAT MAKES APPAREL
    THE MIND,MIGHTIER THAN THE FIST,THE PEN HURTS MORE THAN THE SWORD
    WISDOMS NOT INHERITED LIKE A KINGDOM IT'S A REWARD
    EERIENCE IS ONLY MERITED WHEN LEARNING TAKES PLACE
    AND PORTALS OF DISCOVERY FOR US MORTALS ARE THROUGH MISTAKES
    INTELLECT WITH RETROSPECT REJECTS REGRETS OF PAST EVENTS
    AND IGNORANCE IS ONLY BLISS TO THE MASTERS OF NEGLIGENCE
    WISDOM NEEDS CAUTION AND CONFIDENCE EQUALLY BALANCED
    AND THIS PRISON WE'RE ALL CAUGHT IN IS THE CHALICE OF OUR CHALLENGE


    SO FOLLOW YOUR CONSCIENCE TO THE PARADISE INSIDE YOUR OWN MIND
    IMAGINATION IS CREATION LOVE IS PATIENT AND KIND
    LET HIM WHO DESIRES PEACE ALWAYS BE READY FOR WAR
    LIARS AND THIEVES WHOSE TALK IS CHEAP,YO,BE READY TO FALL
    WISDOM AND TRUE VIRTUE ARE LIKE TWO WHEELS OF A CART
    THE BATTLE IS HALF FLATTENED AS YOU PROCEED TO JUST START
    FORTUNE FAVOURS FOOL AND GOSSIP SEPARATES FRIENDS
    ABUSE JUST SHARPENS THE TOOLS OF THOSE WHO MOVE WITH ELEGANCE
    DONT ONLY JUDGE BY APPEARANCE BECAUSE YOU WILL BE DECEIVED
    AND DONT BELIEVE IN ALL YOU READ UNLESS YOU TEST IT IN DEE
    HONESTY'S THE POLICY CONTRACTED WITH NO FINE PRINT
    AND COMPOSURE THROUGH EOSURE'S THE ONLY WAY TO WIN
    SUCCESS THROUGH STRESS IS BLESSED, TESTS ARE BLESSINGS DISGUISED
    LIES ARE MASQUERADES LIKE MASS PARADES OF BLIND LEADING BLIND
    ENTHUSIASM BRIDGES CHASMS AND PROVES WE ALL HAVE A SOUL PAST MOONS AND SATURN, TRUTH RULES THE PLANETS AND THE UNKNOWN
    TO ACCEPT DEFEAT THOUGH IT CUTS INSTILLS INNER GRACE
    AS VICTORY IS HARD TO KEEP, THIS WAY YOU'LL NEVER LOOSE FACE
    LIFE IS SHORT BUT DEATH IS SHORTER AND THERE ARE MORE WAYS TO LIVE
    TRUE JOY DOES NOT DESTROY IN IT'S RECEIVING IT GIVES
    THE SPIRIT IS UNLIMITED IN ITS ULTIMATE STATE
    WHEN ITS UNHINDERED IT IS INTIMATE IN CHANGING MANS FATE
    THOUGHTS ARE PRICELESS ARTIFACTS THAT SHINE WHEN WE SPEAK
    BUT SECRETS TEACH US PEOPLE THEY ARE THE HARDEST THINGS TO KEEP


    A PICTURE PAINTS A THOUSAND WORDS BUT ACTIONS PROVE VIVID
    I HOPE THIS POET KNOWS IT, SHOWS TO GROW IT AND TRULY LIVES IT
    THROUGH MEDIOCRITY COMES SOCRATES AND ALBERT EINSTEIN
    THROUGH HYPOCRISY AND POVERTY COMES MY LORD JESUS CHRIST
    POSITIVE ENFORCEMENT CANCELS TORMENT AND REWARDS ABILITY
    YET ADVERSITY IS COMMON THOUGH IT TEACHES INTEGRITY
    ONE DAY THE STRONG WILL NEED THE WEAK TO FREE THEM WITH MEEK MIGHT
    AND TRUE SEEING IS NOT BELIEVING IN THAT WHICH YOU SEE WITH EYE SIGHT
    MIND MOVES MATTER AND THOSE THAT FLATTER SET A TRAP FOR A MAN
    BIRD IN THE HAND WORTH TWO IN THE BUSH MEANS HOLD TO WHAT YOU HAVE
    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DREAMER AND A SCHEMERS INTENT
    IS NOT INTELLIGENCE BUT THE INSTRUMENTS THEY USE TO INVENT
    DEATH ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISE ALTHOUGH TOMORROW NEVER DOES
    BECAUSE SHE WILL NOT BREAK HER PROMISE THE OPPOSITE THAT DEATH LOVES
    BUT ALL THESE WORDS THAT I SERVE INCUR A PURE THEME TO ME
    PRACTISE WHAT I PREACH OR BE BESIEGED BY MY FOLLY
    SO NOW MY SILENCE WILL BE GOLDEN, I TAKE REFUGE IN IT
    AND REFUSE ABUSE AND CHOOSE TO USE THIS NEW TESTAMENT
    AND SAY THAT I LIVE, ONLY TO LIVE WHAT I SAY
    AND IF I HAVE IT TO GIVE, NEVER STOW IT AWAY
    I'LL TRY TO BETTER MY BEST IN EVERY LETTER I SEND YA
    REFINE MY METAL TILL IT SHINES ETERNALLY TIMES FOREVER

      I do agree that this is a bit long but the content is powerful and certainly well said. It is clearly an intelligent piece and I applaud your writing here.
