My Quest

Beautiful stubbornness
ask questions
Rebuttal
Argue
Try to figure it out my way
I contemplate
Play devils advocate
and untimidly stand up
It is not pride or conceit
It's growth and putting myself out of my comfort zone
out of comfort, clear the board
erase it
then replace what you thought you know with what you now really know
always changing
big revelations
not just a reading of the text book
memorizing the answers and scoring 100%
it's frustration, humiliation
but deeper into life
where the real questions are
where the real realities of life exists
I'm not afraid
I want to know what I know
And know it unwaveringly
