    ignorance

    it can live and breathe
    as long as you let it
    it clings to you...the host
    it thrives on the energy
    that you give it
    and feeds on what you fear most
    it can grow like a fire
    that takes on air
    and it can rage out of control
    and YOU may not realize
    exactly what is happening
    but everyone else would know
    to answer your question
    on whether or not
    you have been infected
    just ask your friends
    and your family
    they would be first to have felt it
    and if THEIR mirror
    is too much for you
    then you know where the problem lies
    to the host who refuses
    to let it go
    and a denied...open mind

    Another preceptive prescription. You must be a great people watcher. Psychology major or survivor?

    You have such a gift.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
