The final verse is a prayer that we could all echo. Well written poem - I could feel the frustration of the MC and see in my mind's eye and respond to all his efforts to engage with the world.

I feel like somehow you have been spying on me, my actions, thoughts, and secrets then wrote them with such a vivid sense of honesty. I am humbled.

I love the part about poems doing cartwheels and dangling from trapeze cells. Beautiful job on this. Congratulations.
Recalls the phrase -Carpe Diem - seize the day - each moment precious and once considered certain to lift one's spirits. Very nice job of presenting this. Congratulations on your EC placement.
