To glow

Years- content, scheduled, unsure Years- fun, empty, wasted Not few, not a couple, Not too many, just enough To feel soulless, goalless, unexcited Young enough to choose direction, Too old to define life based on talent Young enough to find a yearn for something, anything, Old enough, yearning for many things The urge to dance, sing, write, New, diverse, unlike the usual Not defined by anything besides what could one day be Defined not by resentment, But the fact, that even though happiness should come from finding greatness Happiness has come from the journey of not finding it; Greatness has not been found, in fact Greatness is yearned for, Causing unsureness and adventurousness Adding to the journey, In turn, creating a sense happiness, Almost better than the true form Not only one soul, but a soul and the glow The glow ignites form a form completely separate For with this form, plans have somewhere to begin To branch goals for life from one, true, sure, existence. ©
