how extraordinary!

openness to their best

I find young people amazing
in how open each be to wisdom and beauty,
their words, their art, their movement,
the openness with which each can welcome another,
the courage to take the step, to make the leap,

to reveal the pain within,
to feel another’s pain and then to help,
to feel another’s joy and then to share,

of course steps can stumble,
the juggler drop a ball now and then,
but what almost overwhelms me
is how amazing young people can be.
