Worth a Shot

these things i can’t change
i wish were not the deal breaker.

i am not foolish enough to believe
that my youth is a non-issue,
but i am neither broken enough
not to give the feeling a chance.

never asked for any of these circumstances,
so why should we let them thwart us?

i can’t explain what’s inside of me,
but i’d be remiss to ignore it.

you’re the most beautiful soul,
and with you i feel
my tarnished fractions grow whole—

so despite my inexperience,
and despite all doubts and deterrents,
do you feel as much as i do,

that you and i
should at least
give it a try?
