I found solace,
In ‘therefore’ and ‘because’,
Avoiding webs of doubt and confusion.
Life wasn’t charming, but it was easy,
Neatly stacked in cause and effect,
An uncluttered room of sensible reason.
I shut the doors and windows,
To maintain the status quo,
Keeping exotic sights and sounds at bay.
But the glowing alien light,
Found its way to my safe house,
Capsizing my orderly, rational universe.
It built me a brand new world,
Of startling mercurial emotions,
Wiping and re-writing my core.
And I… I feebly witnessed my rebirth.
