At eighteen,
  I was ninety percent body
  and ten percent mind

  …but over the years that trend has reversed

Now,
  I’m ten percent body
  and ninety percent mind

  …whose biology Father Time chose to curse

My mind
  is now winged
  like a high soaring hawk

  …with youth the small price for what’s known

All limits
  have lifted
  old burdens have gone

  …as my spirit pulls hard to let go

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2018)
