Forty-five is wiser than before,
Old enough, perhaps, to know himself.
Reason needs experience to see
That truth is far more likely "and" than "or."
Yet most prefer their options off the shelf.

For it's not easy to traverse the gulf
In between the will and what must be.
Vast though it may seem, eventually
Each humbled soul succumbs to love and awe.
