My Illumination

November 23, 2008
By Ben Zimmerman, Chandler, AZ

When I was first born,

my eyes opened to the world.
At two,

I began to understand how it worked.
By the time I hit six,

I felt as if I were master of its intricacies.
When I was twelve,

I became curious about it.
Right now,

My curiosity is being satisfied.
Everybody thinks,

I’m often in darkness
But really,

I just stand in a different light.
When I’m 25,

I will have satisfied my curiosity with knowledge.
When I’m in charge,

Everyone will join me in my illumination.
