getting older

so many broken
bones     so many
bumps and bruises
so many twists
and strains across
the body     a history
of striving     forward
motion interrupted
how far one travels
measured by intention
what one dares
each endeavour
a promise
the gift of work
the discipline
of desire     wrapping
hands around you
each tool
full of potential
each task
a seed     each
completion a gift
i keep getting
older     i still feel
young     it is both
true and not true
perception thin
like onion skin
