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!
