Surrounded by an army of doom and gloom cynics,
I enrolled into the University of Hell.
Going for a Master’s in Wisdom,
with a Minor in Instinct.
Discovering a fortress of absolutes,
With an armor almost impenetrable,
Where intangible forces filled with possibilities
and probabilities penetrate.
Gazing into a thousand one horizons,
I became tender, more vulnerable.
Tears of joy and sadness cascade,
Allowing my inner soul to connect.
Walking a path in my own rhythm,
Allowing instinctive forces to guide me,
As I discover the pain,
Learning that nothing is permanent,
Everything is temporary.
Living in a world of an adolescent,
Where pain is part of growth,
Possibilities and probabilities allow intangible
miracles to counter dogmatic absolutes,
So I walk in innocence!
With faith, love and hope.
