Ignorance has such a sweet serenity.
What is beauty without a bit of mystery?
How can we truly appreciate things,
when we've seen all there is to see?


I am simply a man,
I can only command so much.
If I believed myself to be capable of more control,

I'd certainly be an convincing fool.


Guess what I've gathered though?
Often the greatest of gifts,
are not the simple ones we seek,
but are the many we gain along the way.

I view every question as a locked door,
Just begging to be bust open and explored.
It's your responsibility to find the right keys,
and create a perplexing puzzle piece by piece.
