i am the essence of life
see me dance to the tunes of time
as i grow in excellence in search of me
being guided by the elders’ tune
reaching for their ambrosiac food
that wisdom to grasp, to do all good.
yet entwined in me is an evil bound
hangs helplessly my head down
as i cross the path of the unrighteous throng
do you belong?
within me rages a turmoil clear
enchanted by both worlds
there is no fear
to stand aside is to participate
so alone stand i an empty slate.
painfully alone in this silence
reason begets its own question
would you dare make your decision clear?
laughed to scorn by a rebellion strong
this logic called wisdom is a two edged sword
bringing discernment of right and wrong
giving shape to character if found
understanding, is later more profound!
