We are the sum of our experiences,
The product of our circumstances,
Powder kegs of emotion and rationality.
Each of us can explode, implode, or fizzle out.
Me, at first I imploded,
collapsing into self despair.
Oh how I yearned to fizzle out,
To simply let my light disappear.
A glorious failure, indeed!
Explosions are generally viewed as destructive
But, with things such as mining,
They can be vital to progress.
Now, I explode.
I explode into song.
I explode into laughter.
I explode into light.
I explode into the world with positive energy.
