May you fill its pages with magical memories of your own.
I’m not off to see the wizard,
I have all I need
to be champion of the yellow brick road.
Through this spilled ink
lies my inclinations,
my triumphs, my silent tragedies,
my pickpocketed wizardry
that belongs to no one but myself.
I don’t need clear skies to embark -
I’m a trailblazer, the silver lining chaser,
smiling through hurricanes because
in my heart
I know my glorious purpose.
This is to the world I own,
mixture of history and frontier,
a circle of electric attentions
that is endlessly
different from yours,
And all you need to know
is that I’m
giving my everything
to protect it.
- Adam Tie / Novel Encounter
