I yearn for truth in the deep
recess of my soul,
for truth is a song celebrating life,
and life is the composition of all things.
I yearn for knowledge,
for without knowledge truth would
not be, and error would not be know,
for error is a song out of tune.
I yearn for wisdom,
for wisdom is a child in humble
access of truth,
having knowledge of error to correct
I yearn for peace,
peace is a free bird flying in
the open sky,
a joy to behold in perilous night
caressing the wind of time.
