RUSH TO CONQUER

They're painful-
those moments
of humility

A difficult discovery
of vulnerability,
can ambush
like a New England summer storm

Bursts of concern
take hours to calm,
and negotiate
between proof and anxiety

Inflection sets
the narrative now,
as reasoning
grapples furious with nerves

As terrible thoughts
spill a glass half-full,
cautious drops of resolution
rise slow

Mental claims are exclaimed
defiant to strife,
conquering cavalries
of opposition to come
