Mark the tasks

monitor the progress

trace the years

that move ever faster

measure the pace

and consider the ground

deliberate each choice

without a snap impulse

or leap without looking

and live without fear

exuberant and joyful

with each new day

life is a fierce celebration

of grit and will

a smile that returns

even in the harsh moments

we are not unsinkable

but we learned to swim

and so we set our sights

on the Northern Star

arrows aiming forever
