Knowledge + Wisdom = Understanding.
The journey started young. I have been infatuate with knowledge since I was boy, but I was always afraid to approach her. She seemed larger than life and beyond my realm of comprehension. I would come close enough just to get a little of what she had to offer me. I didn't get too close because my peers would tease me and girls would call me soft. I became older and that infatuation turned to true love. Now, I spend time with her and I've been trying lately to give her the attention she deserves. Knowledge gives me light where there was darkness. She gives clarity to things that were once murky. Knowledge also dispels myths and conjectures that I once thought true. She broadens my vocabulary and allows me to express myself more clearly. She is my sunshine and my light. She is my true love.

You always amaze me with your short-shorts. That's where I got my idea for doing them from... you.
But I'm really long-winded.
Hello Stephen. That makes me feel good since I have a great deal of respect for what you write. I try to keep things short and sweet. Maybe that's why I'm so interested in writing short stories. :)
Yeah, I'm w/ Stephen...I can be long winded! I've only recently begun to tell myself, "It's okay, Michele. You can write a short poem!" lol...I really like how you personified knowledge...sorta the way the Bible personifies wisdom in the book of Proverbs. Good stuff. Hey...just caught something: infatuation doesn't have a 'c' in it. Just a head's up. :)
Have a great day, man...
Bay, Good morning! Thanks for recognizing that typo. Well, I actually just spelled it wrong. :)It's funny because I don't think either one of you are long-winded. As a matter of fact, I sometimes don't realize the length of yours words because the content is so palatable. :) Spell check!
Knowledge is the most beautiful thing...I think knowledge is the most essential things we need in our lives...everything else interacts with what amount of knowledge we have.
