The one thing we need

Many have wishes

Things they desire

But all have one thing

That we each require


It isn't a trinket

It isn't a toy

It isn't an object

But it often brings joy


Knowledge is the gift

We each possess

Kept deep in the mind

Too far to caress


For knowledge is power

Knowledge is key

Without knowledge

The future will cease to be


For knowledge provides us with new lessons everyday

And knowledge protects us from running astray

Knowledge is different to each individual

For Knowledge is accessible to everyone


Those who want it

Those who need it

Those who wish it

And those who trust in it

Will be granted knowledge

Because knowledge is the gift we give to ourselves
