Unlocking the Desires of a Youthful Poet

2022; Into your arms, I yield.
decorate my journey
with your illuminating showers.
of paths, I do not know,
of adventures I cannot fathom,
of answers still dancing on my lips.
of the ofs’ still to come.

that with each golden day,
I remain a city set on a hill
lighting up paths unknown,
digging through tunnels unturned
pouring into vessels, far and wide,
whilst my fearful fluttering fade away
to the bottom of the ocean.
