To Break The Sound Barrier

Grown-ups have ears but tend only to hear
things that they’ve already heard –
it might even take them a couple of years
to hear a single unprecedented word

See a centaur simply because
they’d never seen a man mounted;
read lies into sacrosanct truths
when novelty’s being recounted

You will never be free to see
‘til fancy allows things to be

You will never see more
than the colours you know
‘til you see your way clear
to know others do flow

from the very same Light.

it is ALSO true that if you
rely solely on memory…you will never learn anything
