It Takes Twenty Years

It takes twenty years for a baby to grow into a man
That is more than a quarter of the human life span
But some men as they age they do not grow wise
Though some may say to that this is not a surprise
What i write of here i am one who should know
For one in his sixty fourth year i've little in the way of wisdom to show
For all of those Seasons i have seen come and go
Some claim the wise are born with wisdom this well may be so
That a Uni Degree does not bring one wisdom does seem fair to say
With most males their egos of wisdom does get in the way
At least anyhow that's how it seems to me
Beyond our own needs some of us struggle to see
When i say us egotistical males are many and wise males are few
Am i telling you anything that is new?
