Written by my 17 year old self.
Ignorance meets Truth
I saw my future stand up and walk away,
As soon as I could obtain it.
Long had it sat on the shelf, just out of reach.
Once I stood high, assured
When finally I grew, I would be able to do anything.
The great day came
And I stretched out my hands with expectation,
But in that moment
I tripped on reality and fell, far, never to reach out again.
From my new standpoint
I watched my future befriend my hopes and dreams.
Together they left me,
Taking the long coveted moments of life,
Leaving me with the truth.
