Spin loudly wrapped around a journey.

Of wills. Of failures. Successes.

Move quickly at a slow pace. Built in.

Lace experience in fabric–

…pick out stitches of deceit.

See. Use your senses.

Weave in good times. Lessons. Accomplishments. Fortify yourself.

In gentle times. In rough times.

Make it through. To the next creation.

Look back on past monuments. Fortresses built.

Beam with satisfaction at the progression. Nod at transgressions. Shake head at regression.

Live it all. Accept. Forgive. Celebrate.

Have every meaning…and mystery.

What we build is our legacy. Savor it.
