Today I somehow feel elated,
Though a shadow looms over my heart,
I don’t know what has me excited
Nor what appears to tear me apart,
A passion in me has been lighted,
My heart has woken up with a start.
How can I feel sad but delighted?
How can I feel such pleasure and smart?
Emotions which came uninvited,
Heart sailing seas outside any chart,
Spirit seeking answers long blighted;
The magic of it all feels like art
And science have at once united
Into something more than their compart.
