A Dark Time Of Enlightenment



 



They were turbulent times
and the height of the age,
of a substance-filled, drinking
and mind-bending rage.


In a time of great change,
when most teens were confused,
some sought revelations,
some, to be amused.


A few of us dabbled
with certain mind benders;
some played every night;
others, only “weekenders”.


Our quest was to seek
philosophic insight.
In my search for some answers,
I found “two” one night!


I cringe, looking back
at the dangers we taunted.
Those acts left us teenagers
properly daunted!


Surviving those dark times,
I couldn't feel greater;
those insights apply
more than fifty years later!



~William
