I ran



yet I,

found myself


instead the

ugly complexity

of the universe

embracing that

unpolished, nitty-gritty

"It is"

for what

It truly is

The author's comments:

The defnite of inchoate adj means undeveoped, flawed, or unfinished. For much of my life, I have considered myself to be a perfectionist; always focusing on keeping my outward appearance, personal possessions, and traits of myself perfect and orderly. However, as a high school senior, focused on college and reaching major milestones in my life, I have learned to let certain things go. Most importantly, I have grasped the ability to accept nature and situations/people for what they truly are.
