The Edge

Time slowly crawls up the walls of youth

in search of truth that fits his needs to


succeed.  Maturity is not a race to a place

 he can locate on the little map he keeps


 wrapped in his heart.  No one knows how

 slowly his hopes mope up the slopes of


dreams in between scenes where he meets

his queen bee and they strive to start a hive of


little strivers, like their parents, though smarter.

In the end he thinks he must not shrink from


Strenuous striving before ‘arriving’.. ..but is that

Enough to qualify as a worthy try? Who decides


that? Somewhere far away he hears his mother say

                           “Just keep trying”.
