Knowledge patiently waits
At the apotheosis of revelations,
To lend its mind and then send us
Further along the path of the soul.
Infinite secrets lie silently in our hearts.
Revelations come clearer with each finding.
They offer their wings to take us higher.
Knowledge speaks to us at each plateau.
“I am only a bend in the infinite road.
I am your guide to take you to the next.
Each one is a stepping stone along the way.
I am here to graduate you to a higher plateau.
All I ask of you is,
Please don’t stop at the first bend.
There is plenty of room for you at the top.”

I wrote this for the magazine "The Belt and Beyond," for their graduation issue.
