Mike Iskandar's project, 1 to 40

the way in, and the way out

imagine a project:
one person the center for each age, from 1 to 40,
that person’s world explored, recorded, questioned,
each developmental stage captured with elusive clarity,
the wisdom of the self at each year opened-up as a marvel,
when possible, memories tapped, the future guessed at,

each unique self whole and complete,
though also still becoming, changing in the revealing,
staying true to the individual soul who imbues each of us,

once again, here is an extraordinary truth:
that the truer we are to our individuality,
the truer we are somehow to our commonality,

the way out to others
can equal the way in to our selves.
