It knows no boundaries

It has spread like a disease across the globe.

It persists from morning until night.

It requires trust and patience.


Its fountain never runs dry.

It fosters joy and sadness.

It provides reflection and wisdom.

It cannot be injected or given orally.

It has no specific half-life.


It does not require perfection.

It does welcome maturity.

It is like a virus that lays latent in our body.

It might as well be a part of our genome.


It needs no radiation or chemotherapy.

It does need guidance and loyalty.

It needs us to become risk takers.

It needs God at the center of it all.
