[Image Description: a nature photo with large boulders in the foreground and a waterfall in the distance framed by trees with green foliage. In the center of the photo, an adolescent boy wearing black shorts, a tank top, backpack, and blue hat is partially silhouetted against the waterfall, jumping between two large rocks.]

Seemingly sudden
shifts lead to
freefalling into
experimental moments,
making best guesses in
an attempt to cultivate

a freedom,
an inner knowing,
an understanding of
healthy connection
you’re still trying
to learn yourself.

Unlearning,
turning over tables
to build something new,
create a new arc
out of gleaned wisdom
and hope.

Finding ways
to navigate uncertainty,
knowing successes
and failures
will only be visible
in hindsight.
