Poetic Thoughts - the wisest person i know - by C.W. Pruitt II
posted: Jun. 14, 2019

Poetic Thoughts header

the wisest person i know
is schizophrenic
i will not say his name
to preserve his anonymity
i rarely call him b/cuz
i do not want to interfere
with his vibe
every
once
in a while
i will see him
chillin cooly
outside of his apartment building
sometimes
he will invite me up
to his flat
for a private
session
He shows me his art
(upon request)
which is less schizophrenic
than it used to be
but is still
crazy enough
to be considered
art
one time i mentioned
some thing about
trying to be happy
He said,
"No, no, CW, happiness
is a bad plan, man!
Just be mellow.
Take it easy as you can.
Avoid Excitement
and at the end
of the day
you will look back
with satisfaction."
You may find it
paradoxical
that i have
found wisdom
in such
an unlikely source.
But it may be
quite
simply
meek inheriting Earth.
