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”.
