Sailing through darkness,
The inertia of the sea’s mighty current is not enough
To test your will.
You honestly are who you aren’t,
And you shall become whether by growth or evolution,
But exposure is the culprit of your validation.
Perhaps you are already there?
Inch by inch, yardstick by yardstick, step by step —
Even quantum leaps into the abyss of not knowing
Are not enough to serve as litmus.
Though each stride will come what may,
When your moment comes, it will take you from behind.
