The age of memory has passed
and what I read and learn does not stay long in my mind
I will not often be able to recall it in ways I can express to you
My knowledge may seem hollow to you, my intellect amiss
But it does stay with me
It makes a home deep in my soul and changes who I am in subtleties and complexities
It becomes a part of my skin and bones and radiates from my heart
It stays with me forever and becomes me
