What's It Take To Grow

What's it
take to grow
to make
known what
life has not
yet shown
 
to reach
into the
unknown
may take a
blind man's
groping hands
lead by chance
and circumstance
 
or
 
one can
endeavor
to plan
to seek out
insight
with which
to stand
fortified in life
by what
reading
and truth-seeking
provide
the light
that can
act as
a guide
the flashes
that alight
the path
ahead at
night
