Experience not constant if you fully live

Emergence reflects what you give

Noble actors on your stage

Your dreamscape to rearrange


Some live constant cradle to grave

Familiar happenings rarely a wave

For adventurous souls on the path

Hard to predict next aftermath


As life unfolds note what’s true

Don’t deny feelings let them through

Honor emotions jumping out front

Denying them growth will stunt


You pay for mobility

A cost to life that’s free

Remember where you come from

Mark heartbreaks though not fun


Remember glory and the fears

Remember vision through the tears

Never easy path that’s bold

Cherished memories as you grow old


What have been the rewards and costs of things you are proud of because you dived in?

What do you regret more, things you did or things you never tried?
