Yet to Flourish

True, it will likely take
years to actually

harness what we deem
suitable, pleasing

in any honest sense
of those words.

Our hairs will be grey
but our senses sharper.

Senseless to stay down
on the sloppy errors,

misspellings, or missed
articulations of our

innermost agony and elation.
Indeed, it is entirely

vain to allow vacillation
to dwell so deeply

that we silence the inner
voice who speaks

There is a beauty in the
process in which

we strive for excellence,
struggle for expression;

and there is time to flourish—
at least, for now.
