Full Speed Ahead – a poem

Full Speed

Waiting to reach a number… thinking wisdom comes with age.

Surprised… discovering more mistakes and foolishness ahead.

What brings maturity and wisdom… surviving and embracing it all.

This is my entry for this weeks Sijo Poetry Challenge with theme/inspiration of GROWING UP/Mature.

There are details in the prompt on how to write a Sijo, a syllable based poetry form similar to a haiku but originating in Korea.
