The truth is

So many seasons carry us

To new depths

And adjust our resonance

And tilt our glasses

To sense

Of what was once a sensitive

Matter seems

Less delicate

I indulge in your character

You show me true resilience

I marvel in your care

And I would love to share

Your story with others

So many times you shy

Away from what has you bound

It’s remarkable the feats you’ve endured

And what meets the eye

Is only the truth of a weathered youth

You should be proud

Yet you seem to stay in clandestine

Let me tell your story

It will bring you glory.
