For The Future Of The World


I went into it branded as a learner
for I had concern for the outcome;
which concern,
by entering unbranded,
I had previously and dangerously denied.

I had been assisted out of it, that time,
by an individual
who concedes that ignorance is one's birthright,
and that, for the future of the world,
one must be assisted out of it.
