The moment
I feel sure
I lament
such certitude
I can't endure

for the window
of my perception
would have been shut
my sense of direction
I would have lost

give me doubt
let me have
questions
unanswered

they shall set me free
as I would be
unencumbered

life is a kaleidoscope
peering through
its prism a new world
is waiting to be discovered

indeed I can't say
or accept--a certain colour
is all I need to define myself
that would be totally absurd

all that's before me
is a challenge and test
I stumble and fall
many events do hurt

but these shall only make me
larger than I could ever be
in the vicissitudes of living
all that which obstructs
I would have conquered.
