When knowledge arrives

it brings a behind bucket

full of pain with it. It draws the line of this

and that and the rights of wrongs and

the wrongs of being right. It curbs your

words and convicts your tongue. The

sun looks different and the moon not

so bright. Your friends change and

your goals have new directions. You

don’t sit as much and you learn that

running can be healthy.

Your buying less soda and more

yogurt. The news appears to repeat

itself until you yell “shut-up” at the

television. You read more and discuss

world events that would have bored you

before. You sleep more soundly and

awake with a new drive.

Life is good, and different.
