Mostly Tripping Up

We are ascending rapidly at the moment.

Ahead of me I see others gracefully, skillfully,

Rising up. Elegantly flowing to their highest potential.

I admire them. Long, at times, to gracefully flow as well.

Yet, here I am. Tripping rapidly. Stopping at times to catch my breath.

Laughing, with the others who are around me, as we, sort of, gracefully ascend.

Sharing stories that used to be. Sharing dreams that might become.

Living life as we can. A group of one. Rising up to our highest potential.

Even if we trip up once in a while. Laughing at our blunders.

Embracing all the glorious, messy, and poignant moments along the way.
