Accompanying poem:

Those of us who are no longer young and who’ve worn out our bodies down to the nub as we toiled away in barren fields sowing one seed of optimism after another; those of us who for harvest moon after harvest moon after harvest moon, have found ourselves staring at the heavens in crises of faith wondering why are prodigious efforts bear so little fruit; those of us who’ve come so very close to conceding defeat before finally awakening to that glorious day when the gear – like twists of faith that had perpetually held us back where were finally seized and ceased by both the molten energy of our intentions and the salty, corrosive sweat of our brows, those of us who, have been liberated from our re strengths, were then rightly rewarded with a bountiful harvest of both prosperity and wisdom that far exceeded the wildest expectations of all those around us. WE’RE DIFFERENT. What sets us apart is the overflowing, endlessly re generating GRATITUDE we have, not merely for what we now enjoy – that’s a given – but for the hard times as well as the skipped meals, the threadbare clothes, the willing sacrifices an restless nights that precede our success, are now seen by us as something worth cherishing, for we know with certainty they are the soul of what we’ve become. And so to you, the young, we the fortunate, say this. May your journey towards fulfillment be long, and arduous, and may it feature many of the same bleak horizons and valleys of doubt we once experienced. May love break your heart in half and may life’s thorny realities cut their way into your tender flesh time and time and time again until, at last, the sweet bouquet of hard – earned success deservedly fines it’s way to your nose and you finally learn what it is to be among the Truly TRULY – Fortunate
