    Grant me a wish, I'll follow your lead
    Show me the memories when you made me free
    Remind me of garden where careless I'd be Courage it took from darkness to flee
    Guide me to place, where vanished are brought
    There's still one battle left to be fought
    Paint my face in sharpness and steel
    No other pain is yours to feel
    Look at the horizon and others will see
    How brighter you shine by believing in me.

    Love which is abundance, bad-ass, fierce.
    Without limitations, confirmations and boundaries.
    Is True.

    Um, not bragging but, this turned out to be much crappier than expected, haha. So make sure to read it. Aloud. Or Silently. Or smell it. Or feel it. Ok just smell it.

    >The third poem I ever wrote < pretty bad but, never mind. XD.

    Read a poem

    Read it once, twice or thrice. You might or might not get it. Not because you're guileless or naive, but because it was meant to be read all over again. Not to perceive all the veracious things, but to interpret what seems unerring to your conscience. And embrace all the ambiguity.

    There gets involved your attitude towards it and the technique, which is obviously a mystery. And legit a legion.
    But the curiosity is what survives.!
    A poet might have conceived whatever they wanted but you would assuredly preconceive all that you need. You might try to relate, but don't always try to fit in, it's not your story, oops poem.

    Read it swiftly, or just be as heedful as you would be, interpret stuff all you can, but do observe too, that does the best of elucidation. But wait, isn't explaining a poem equal to annoying the poet?
    So be sure to illuminate the mystery subconsciously.(shhh). Or take the risks all you need.

    And beware of the music hidden in the tone and the rhythm, where all the allusion thus lies. It's definitely your ingenuity that should be greeted by approbation. *applause*

    And as to how, you should read a poem?
    You doubtlessly know better than I do for sure!
