i am easy to please,
really, i am...
just answer my riddle and i'll let you enter
this chamber where
mysteries stranger than life abound and confound.
my pleasure is delivered in moments where
i can see the simplicity of joy in the glimmer in one's eyes
when they reach for prizes of accomplishment beyond their
personal beliefs comprehension,
yet my displeasure is equally captured in tears in my heart
when i see the hope drain from the dreams
of my children when they are beaten
down by the foes of their self doubts.
do you know who i am?
if you guessed that i am the muse
you may enter, oh artist,
and dream new worlds into existence.
you are now free to sleep and dream!
