    LIGHT THE WORLD

    Stumble,
    crumble
    crash
    then hopefully,
    unabashed,
    Rise.
    Only to fall again,
    in new places.
    Disregard the sneers
    on new faces.
    Think
    Speak,
    and be thought a fool,
    if not quite wise.
    Then
    Through derogation
    and excoriation,
    by contemplation and
    compromise,
    open your eyes wide
    sharpen your mind.
    Make efforts to perfect,
    until
    logic and ethics intersect
    and render
    the fog lifted,
    tongue's less twisted,
    as you
    sifted
    through the muddled haze
    of incongruities,
    moral inconsistencies.
    Emerge from the tempest
    enlightened.
    Find scrolls of wisdom
    channeled to be unfurled.
    Then
    dare to strike the match
    that may
    someday
    light the world!

          Perfectly Dwayne. Never be afraid of failure. Learn, get up and go again. You can change the world one failure at a time

              Uplifting, DWAYNE! Fail, learn, enhance, repeat as often as necessary. As Ms Frizzle of ‘The Magic Schoolbus’ says less poetically, ‘Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy.’ How you used rhyme in this makes it feel more lyrical than you often write.
