Student of Mine

How delicious is our curiosity,
Guiding us through night?
Unaware of the troubles that are revealed in the daylight

A world aches
For a child as bright-eyed as you
Pain bolstered by the life the child has lived through

Yet, you are still beautiful, student of mine
Within a large landscape,
You are the shine

But like any light, we saw you flicker and vanish
Your stomach for curiosity
Now no longer famished

We look for your presence
Please, child, where have you gone?
We require your songs and delectable love

Men have manipulated your passions
Created a mockery of your truest intentions

Like a waning moon, time has clipped at your light
Forced you into darkness
Into misery
Into spite

How bitter is your wisdom,
Forged in a pit of fire?
But with each ache of your heart, you keep climbing higher

Higher

Higher

You are the truth, the now and the then
It’s high time that you make those amends

Welcome to the world, student of mine
Within a large landscape,
You are the shine

You are deliciously sour, bitter, and sweet
You are everything we are all striving to be
