Twenty-nine has signed on for the race,
Working hard to get herself in shape.
Each day is now a step towards something more,
Not purely for itself, though at its core
The process is the prize, and not the place.
Yet years yield dreams from which one can't escape.

Now it is enough to learn, and ape
Instructors in the mysteries of grace,
New wisdom, art, and consciousness embrace,
Entering into selves not seen before.
