There were years of preparation
"One day, when..."
When all the ticks mark all the boxes
and your longings are laid to rest.
When you are always in control
going where you want to go.

or the you you were,
But who you are now.

of should have, could have,
It is time to learn how
to be a dear friend
Yes, all of the fractured cracks
and fierce glowing embers have combined
to form a one-of-a-kind thing of beauty.

imperfection in harmony
with grace in motion.
You have come upon the dazzling
awkward road towards finding yourself
