Poem: A Send Off to Adulthood

And today begins a brave new voyage
Where we give up the vestiges of youth
For the adornment of responsibility
That comes with dawning of adulthood
We leave the safe harbors of home
For the uncertain waters of the future
That may seem safe and calm up close
The promise of stillness will not persist
So we must prepare for the tempests
Hoping that the ships we built will stand
Demonstrating the fortitude needed
To traverse the uncertainty ahead
Until we find new lands to plant ourselves
Proven worth through our trails between
Here’s to foregoing the safety known
To challenges unseen that will forge
Unshaped mettle into something more
Suited for leading ahead the future 

Today’s experimental poem is a Envoi, meant as a type of send off to someone. You can read more about it by clicking here.
