Falling Forward

I am fragile
A fragility that functions
As my hardness…
A façade masquerading as strength

I am strong…
I know my vulnerabilities 

I am human
A humanity that functions
As my reason
For every awkward fact about me

I am divine…
I recognize the limitations of my humanity

I am a poet
Beyond my hardness
It is my humanity that gives volition to my fragility
I am god-like…I create my world

My life is a process of falling forward…
My future is inevitable
