# Upon a black field. The cursor blinks.

# It's silence protecting its secrets.
# The novice painstakingly pronounces incantations.
# Forming ideas into commands, commands into phrases, phrases into instruction
# And is rejected.

# Upon a black field. The cursor mocks.

# A slight adjustment here, a spelling correction there.
# ... rejection.
# Again and again, the cycle repeats
# Until the novice despairs of their ignorance, shame, and self-pity

# A guiding hand.
# The novice becomes an apprentice.
# A dedication to craft.
# The passage of time.
# The apprentice becomes a master.

# Upon a black field. The cursor awaits

# A search through memory, and adjustment of the past.
# An act of will upon the future.
# Infinite possibility at the whim of the master.

# Upon a black field. The word is power.
