I didn’t know
that with age
I would become
the embodiment of eminence
the zenith of glory
full of ardor and vigor

I didn’t know
that with time
I would metamorphose into
a deluge of intensity
the apex of vitality
with extravagance and flourish

I now know
my authentic self
has matured to accept
that my torso is better than a carcass
that I am not ornament, folly or frill
kudos to my mettle and resolve
