Awakened

Location

Awakened from slumber
Eyes opened wide
Mind calculating, planning
Thoughts zooming by

Restless, yearning
Devouring books
Reaching and grabbing
Recieving strange looks

Pushing aside mindless chit-chatter
Reaching for glasses
Shakespeare's dramatics
And Algebraic quadratics

Unquenchable, unbelievable
Hungering lust
For more and more knowledge
Before it all turns to dust
