Philosophy

Philosophy

Just the sound of that word has always intrigued me.

Difficult, logical, lofty

Out of reach.



Yet, I am offered a teacher, a mentor, a guide…to help build a foundation,

Firmly admonishing, waving a finger at me,

“Read slowly and carefully,

Do not go on to the next paragraph without understanding the last…”



So I begin,

Walking up those steps,

To the doorway, cracked open—I see a bit of light and peak around the door;

The gentlemen in their robes turn to me with smiles,

And beckon me in to the light.
