The boldest faces
are the ones making the transition
from babbles to bubbly speech.
The boldest thoughts
are spoken aloud from the
smallest and high-pitchiest of mouths.
The most audacious dreams
come from the youthful minds
uncorrupted by flocks of fear and failure.
As is all things, the newest to come and the soonest to go all speaks their first or final truths,
while all other lives find themselves bounded, wandering, in the nothingness of the middle.
