Ones tries,
in most things
to be sophisticated
and scholarly,
to deliver the insight,
the discerning perspective.
One fails where others succeed,
and yet those who succeed
fail where others triumph,
and this generation:
diagnosed with indifference,
the symptoms of growing apathy,
appears to have forfeit where victory was once chased.
But the pursuit outweighs the payoff,
and there is always knowledge where
ignorance and mystery are thought to roam,
always insight to crush the arrogance
of metaphorical wisdom
to humble the most highly regarded
