Imagination is more important than knowledge. Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. The important thing is not to stop questioning. The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education. -Einstein

I soar and circle love to search for mine
I crash upon an empty dream tonight
A dream to warn the crazed and those who pine
A dream to rob my senses and my sight
A dream that lies and acts that “all is fine”
A dream that cheats and claims that “all is right”
Yet I, a hopeful fool, still wait in line
That I forever yearn for Venus’ light –
            “Passion compass how you shine!
            Set my frigid hearth alight
            Hold me ‘till we intertwine
            Fill me with your tender might!”
A day, a fortnight, and the clock chimes nine
When Venus twirls me up at halcyon height
            “Torn and broken dear of mine
            Look upon the charming light
            Gone with false dreams – cheap designs
            It is time to live your life!”
A month, a season, then the stars align
When inner voice projects and charms ignite
I feel and I embrace my newfound vine
I dream again to live this newfound flight.
