Life's University

I am not Harvard graduated
But I have a Ph.D. from life

I take notes raptly watching it unfold
To decode the hoax of subtle to gross

I study its overwhelming mysteries
To the point of meaningless meaning

I just simply learn from the very best teacher and guru, Silence.

The inquisition boils down to
How can I get an A from it?

Be quiet and you will know.

Mental noise is the worst enemy
a curious mind can have

It never lets truly totally grasp
The lessons in silence dwell

In silence lies, the only thing
worth knowing in the world,

Who we are...?
