In the beginning we come into this space
as innocent beings fumbling around
the empty fields stretching forever.
We stare in wonder and with amazement
as to the endless possibilities
and the control we have of our life.
Then something changes and the field
begins to fill with objects and obstacles
and where there was no path, forks in the road.
How we navigate this field and
how far reaching our sphere of influence
determines the lanterns brightness when we return.
