The Fool

I look at my card, it's that of a fool.
Should I put this card back into the deck?
Can I harness his power as my tool?

I try to keep my emotions in check.
Will immaturity rule all my days?
Should I put this card back into the deck?

Perhaps impulsive, the fool has his ways.
Does my own journey lead to a bright place?
Will immaturity rule all my days?

Sometimes it's hard, to look at my own face.
I see untapped potential in my eyes.
Does my own journey lead to a bright place?

I look with excitement and realize.
Sometimes a fool doesn't have to pretend.
I see untapped potential in my eyes.

Will I stop before I come to an end?
I look at my card, it's that of a fool.
Sometimes a fool doesn't have to pretend.
I can harness his power as my tool!

    Like Duke I thought I was reading a poem about a regular deck of cards. And I was going to comment that Jokers were wild. I have no idea what the "Fool" card represents in a Tarot deck. Fun poem.
