Since the community appears to enjoy Riley riddles, I have another one for the community to solve. As always, good luck to you all!

Witness the prefix, it looks similar to you; built with some wicker, and wire too.

Knowing the infix, will help you a lot; like one or the other, or maybe not.

Recognize the suffix, above you will see; the backbone required, to build your knees.

Open your mind, this word an illusion; no, just to youth, with play in fusion.

Possible solution

Is the word you are looking for work?

Witness the prefix, it looks similar to you; built with some wicker, and wire too.

The prefix in this case is 'w'. It looks similar to u, and is present in wicker, wire and witness.

Knowing the infix, will help you a lot; like one or the other, or maybe not.

The infix is 'or'. Or is used multiple in the hint.

Recognize the suffix, above you will see; the backbone required, to build your knees.

The suffix is 'k' which is required to build the word knees.

Open your mind, this word an illusion; no, just to youth, with play in fusion.

People often say that if you enjoy what you do you never work a day in your life making it an illusion to those who fuse it with play. Also the acrostic WKRO is an anagram for work.
