THEN UNDERSTAND

Rainbows of hope endlessly span in the ether vast
Effortlessly redoubling in voids’ empty caverns
Every thought entwined, lacking innate freedom

Illumination grandiosely illustrated to a select audience
Captivated in the auspicious moment of success 
Impressing no one with odious jargon 
And theses absorbed through ever pouring over scrolls
A mind inundated with alien concepts 

Anew the intricate webs influence the inner psyche
Arrows carelessly aimed, fired at Cupid’s aura 
Finding a willing entrance to a yearning, aching heart

Embracing the agreement to eternal life in the unconditional love offered
Confucius: ““I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I then understand."
