Sometimes in your quiet moments, a cold wind blows.
It is a chilly one, it makes you curl up your toes.
Deep within you start to ponder, marveling at all that you now know.
It startles you and makes you look around, wondering if it shows.
The wisdom you’ve sought for is suddenly in you; it comes out of the shadows.
All the fight in you vanishes; you no longer need to come to blows.
An epiphany washes over you, like water pouring from a hose.
An unexplained contentment envelopes you; the tingles even reach your elbows.
You are buoyed by this new truth; you no longer need to pose.
Your life then becomes a success story, making for inspirational prose.
