My eyes opened for the first time in a strange, new world. The conglomeration of star material in a precise and organized manner, along with the fusing of two different strands of DNA, is what comprises the essence of my physical constitution. Kicking and screaming, I have arrived. I'm embraced by comforting arms, yet everything is foreign to me, and the nature of my temporal and fragile state is immediately apparent, as well as self-evident, and will continue unrelentingly so for the remainder of my stay here. The source of my consciousness is an elusive door that begs to reveal itself, and desires to be thrust open unabatedly. My knowledge and understanding, of that which surrounds me, begins at a level comparable to nothing, but will proceed to grow exponentially with each orbital revolution around the sun.

English is my first language pero estoy aprendiendo Español.
Disclaimer: below are lyrics in Spanish from songs I really like and say nothing about me except for my affinity for poetry, especially when it is beautifully written.
"Tu risa, carita divina, me vuelve a emocionar. Y tanto que llego a imaginar que somos piratas en el mar.. Levanta el ancla, nos vamos juntos hacia el sol."
"I really don't know what I'm going to become from now on. I'm simply along for the ride to see what happens to this body and this brain of mine. I'm startled that I became a writer. I don't think I can control my life or my writing. Every other writer I know feels he is steering himself, and I don't have that feeling. I don't have that sort of control. I'm simply becoming." - Kurt Vonnegut
"I would rather have a mind opened by wonder, than one closed by belief" - Gerry Spence
