It's A Puzzle
The moment we are born |
a giant crossword grid is created,
titled with our names.
White squares represent positive experiences,
joyful moments, dreams achieved.
Black squares: negative, sad minuses.
There are usually far more white squares than black,
particularly in those a little more difficult,
requiring steadfast dedication
The task… to fill in the white squares
using information gleaned from human interaction.
Sometimes going back,
referring to helpful information
provided from other experiences.
Assistance can be obtained from selected reference material
or by consultation with the crossword creator.
The latter option
should not be considered as only a last resort.
Errors are inevitable
but not beyond correction.
As the grid nears completion participants often weary
but should not despair
for soon you can say,
with positive assurance
of your reward...
It is finished!
