Natural Born Stranger

Natural born stranger
In this world.
Of unnatural ways.
The infant.
A bag of potential.

Childhood begins to open
One's bag of potential.
And plays at Being .
many revelations of Self.

Adolescent dance
angst with courage
facing all of one's potential.

Young adulthood,
One begins to the
      unfolding potential
into one's actuality of Self,

It's an unfolding of Self:
A falling of the scales
From the eyes of the heart.

In elder years of reflection
What has been achieved
Perceived in humility.
Failures mourned and repented
With great regret.

Is the story of most everyone's life.
