Within sight, my dreams hover,
a new frontier of hopeful expectation
beckoning, "Jump in and swim!"
Fears and insecurities, long a crutch,
now banished as I round the corner
of youth and leap into middle age.
Undauntingly I embrace new opportunities,
my "freestyle stroke" much improved,
no longer held back, I feel young
and carefree for the first time,
Who knew it would take half a lifetime?
