On days that begin a fair 4 hours too soon
I step my branded feet inside this naturally-lit room
My professor starts off making a radical proposition
"Learn to unlearn everything you have previously known about composition"
We engage in talks that range from gaming to Metanoia
He scares us with projects and quickly eases that paranoia
Uttering things like "Be creative and you will not fail
For if you learn to use your imagination you will learn everything well"
So as I type this with creative thoughts in midst of oscillation
I realize I'm doing this assignment out of fun and not obligation.
So when I climb this mountain of composition, I'm sure not to fall
Because I realize I'm using my own mind to succeed, and thats the greatest realization of all.
