Great Minds Always Encounter Violent Opposition - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

The Philosopher
The Analyst
The Seeker
The Poet

'discovering the
core of things
has gifted you
with the ability
to separate
the true
from the false
Some may detect
'A Glow'
(refined and inspirational)
and some
may see 'A Demon'
(a degenerate enthusiast)
but one thing
for sure-
you have a powerful effect
on anyone
who enters your world-
changing us
by accelerating the pace
of our own growth'.
