If knowledge is
always let it share.
If knowledge is placed
and desires to seek and hide:
let me always find.
comes gift wrapped,
let my “mind” be gifted:
when knowledge undresses for me,
and shows me the naked truth.
If knowledge is... the question of
may knowledge always,
which “answers” back too.
If knowledge: is the key for
and the door through,
always place the key ring in my hand;
when it opens the door,
to my mind and hands me success.
If knowledge is... penetrating:
let my 'curiosity' thrust deeply
when I'm mining gold,
in the “library” of
the librarian's own mind.
If knowledge is... electric:
let knowledge never ever blow a fuse
or be disconnected.
If knowledge also leads too:
let me be guided to “follow” ahead.
is the sunrise & sunset
to what each day speaks;
let me fully understand and
“acknowledge”: that which is spoken.
is a lifetime of instruction
of what my life needs,
may all of it touch me
and tease my imagination,
with an appetite to 'crave' science.
If knowledge: really is
let it always empower/always keep me
willing to do what it takes,
when there's no turn around
and no way out.
If knowledge: is sunken treasure,
inside my teacher's mind,
may I never be afraid to ask questions,
or be too dominating
about drawing-up conclusions,
when I am “claiming” the classroom:
as my private property.
is love worth finding
and betting my life on it;
may discretion intercept & contracept
with condom knowledge.
If knowledge, is what it says it is:
let me be humbly patient:
as I... receive all of its wisdom.
