As a child, the world around me seemed bright,
The vibrant hues of nature and life
Intrigued me so with a blinding light
That masked the toils and strife.
Through art, I found myself,
Seeking a passion for what I liked
But vibrant colors only masked my pain.
Doomed to depict the light of life.
Through science, I found myself,
Through observation, I learned more about myself
But every time the bell rung,
I was back a square one.
O' how lonely the road to knowledge was
How dark it was
Illuminated only by the light of life.
Through religion, I searched again
For an end to the eternal darkness of life.
Again, to no surprise, I found illumination
That blinded all sight.
I gave into it- it consumed me.
I gave into a world plagued by light.
