The Next Teacher

I was bereft,
Void of guidance,
In human form,
Seeking truth,
Illuminating my journey,
Enui threatening,
My very being,
You appeared,
My next Teacher.

I was thirsting so
For wisdom
For insight
And knowledge
With which to grow,
To glow,
To understand,
To command,
To be,
To see,
In a different way.
So on this day,
I say,
Thank you,
My next Teacher.
