A Sound Soul Inhabits A Sound Mind
This one act of furthering your knowledge can spark a light;
Or begin to breed the embers to an inferno.
Just this one, nothing more and nothing less.
It is able to inflict a larger repercussion than
That of a civil war.
One may say,” with great power comes
With great responsibility.”
This flame is the complete embodiment
Of the human desires.
Which contain the drive to prosper, and
To become a better individual
Through this growth the ignorance that
Once clouded the mind can begin to clear.
The only boundaries that are there are rather
Those that you allow your imagination to contain.
It can be a single spark or tens of thousands can erupt.
Some can be temporary or everlasting as the
Impact of learning can make.

Of the growing of a tree.
This creature too lifts, breathes, and lives
To stand tall and proud.
Though it all started with one small seed
Buried in the depths of the mind.
It grew, it bloomed, it took life and like many things
Whilst requiring nurturing, and soft tentative care;
Or death would have slowly begun to run its
Alluring claws over it and eventually,
Enveloped the entirety of its being.

Upon the first day, the room door was wide open
Almost like the warmth of an embrace
That you receive from your mother that she
Provides to her child with solace in ultimate times of grief.
Silence lies within this room,
But it lacks nothing, rather it sprouts life in the hearts of
All that step within these walls.
At this very moment in time
The thoughts, inquiries, and vicious ideas
Pound in my skull like thunder this storm
Can spread and result in raging collisions,
However, when this disarray dissipates
All that will remain is a beautiful rainbow
That will lighten the entire sky, and remove any signs of impurities.
The colors of this light represent the revived
Mind meant for daily uses,
It breathes by June’s end
Only to lead to the warmth that summer will bring. Continue reading
