faded bride

you never know
where life will take you

we like to think we know
or at the very least

can guess


we are born
with all the knowledge
we need and
spend the rest
of our lives


each step brings us
a tiny bit closer
to understanding
that in the end
we know


because even in
the worst of years

the driest hottest
drought of summer

can bring forth
the perfect blush

of one september
