Eternal Student

The eternal student craves knowledge  
And the depths of eternal wisdom
Not to fill the ego of self
But because they are in a constant covetous state of mine  
Yearning to be fulfilled but not by outer sources such as materialism, temporary lovers and pleasures  
But with what lies in between the lines of each academia consumed  
And what the universe beyond the earthly bound must illuminate  
They do not understand the entropy of life’s sufferance  
They are derided for not taking interest in current high-class fashion and mudsling    
Ridiculed for being socially impaired and not taking a mind to it  
They embrace their dark reclusive path  
Attentive and unintelligible, if you will  
Intellectual and adept into the occult  
They understand the irrevocably in certain past times,  
Yet they remain in somber, as it is part of the human experience  
Elusive being but open to the multitude perceptions of others  
As they are aware perceptions are not universal truths  
This openness keeps them humble and empathetic
Alchemic and psychedelic in order to transcend  
Our human existence is a covenant between life and death  
The eternal student knows and understands this  
So, they search for the infinite bliss and wisdom that is available on this earthly bound until the time comes to ascend to the hierarchy of the higher grounds known as the cosmos
