Transcendence

Life does not give itself to one who tries

to keep all of its advantages at once.

To grasp any of those fleeting blessings,

one must first prepare to meet them,

and then, actively, to reach for them.

In that collision in space and in time

of seemingly wayward  bodies, fated

to startle one another onto altogether

differing paths, the limits of limitlessness

and tomorrow are transcended, surpassed.
