In the ocean of knowledge, some people will swim on the surface of understanding, some will snorkel just below it, and a few will scuba dive down to the depths. Some will also choose to remain forever on the beach.

Imagine the thoughts of your mind
as a stream,
flowing ahead and trailing behind,
like a dream.
All those you pass by
must enter its wake —
say none remain dry,
just for argument’s sake.
Upon wading through,
reflecting back from their shore,
would many or few
emerge changed by the chore?
