Only at this moment can I begin
To fully understand and comprehend
Where I have been and hope to be
When this whole thing comes to an end.
Now those times when I felt lost,
And failed to account for the cost
Of actions (even those I thought right),
Are like wounds left un-mended.
I hope for tomorrow, that we all
Can begin to see that all our faults
Are a part of our call, noble in nature,
To strive for greater heights.
The greatest eagles fail to fly
If they’re afraid of a fall.
