Is it normal to begin well past your supposed prime?
To try things so new and fresh and scary
That you'd forgotten what it was like to be green?
Will I be able to forget the magical?
Should I try to forget the unpleasant?
Which would make me whole?
Excitement and guilt
Pain and beauty
Scars yet healing liberation
Becoming a fading memory that relinquishes power to the imperative now
Alas, I must begin again.
Reflecting is good for the soul. Doing so in public is terrifying and exhilarating.
