faux wisdom

1.     age and youth cannot co-exist
        until one of them gives up their right
        to be something they're not.

2.     i hold a robin's egg.
        marvel at the tiny, delicate, thin shell.
        marvel that it holds life, blue as the sky above.
        the robin's egg holds me.

3.     if, on a cool september morning
        you walk the beach,
        travelling from driftwood to driftwood,
        eventually you will find yourself.
