Potential Energy

Perhaps it’s untimely to counsel you now,
but I can’t suppress my emotions.
You’re full middle-aged, and of course you know how
to live – you don’t need any notions
from mother or father – not even from spouse –
each may be a foe you’re evading.
But now is the season to exit the house
where drudgery love has you fading.
Potential must grow to kinetic at length,
or wither without good production.
I know you and urge you to harness your strength,
and flourish beyond love’s obstruction.
