Each day, do you set out once more
on a voyage of discovery—
following a horizon you’ve been told
bends to itself with wonders in between?

Or do you trace a well-worn path,
fitting your feet to yesterday’s footsteps—
unfolding that map of  yourself

that ventures deeper with each step?

How old are you now?
Old enough to know
both courses can take you

in the same direction?

The prompt word today was “discover.”
