Before imperfection
       I sought life’s meaning 
       not knowing the rowing 
       was it, not the arrival.

       Before I became ignorant
       I told others what to do
       believed I had answers
       not knowing even the questions.
       Before I became old
       I found age’s quiet boring
       its slowness a flaw, not knowing
       the rowing toward wisdom.
