"The time at which something is most powerful or successful" (Dictionary).
The height of success most often comes with age.
There appear to be a few anomalies with this thought,
such as: Mark Zuckerberg;
but, I daresay, even he hasn't reach his zenith.
How can that be?
Because ones zenith isn't about fame, fortune,
or development of the newest, most popular technology of the day;
it's about character and becoming the best version of oneself,
it's about being able to offer the whole of who you've become without pretense.
When your purposes on earth have been met,
when you've fulfilled the path God meant for you to follow;
when your life has left imprints on people's hearts,
that will last throughout their lifetimes,
when you've made a difference
(as each beat of your heart does);
It's when you're able to speak your mind and heart without fear of repercussions.
No longer living life with excuses that have held you back
but embracing a life of doing without reserve.
Face your mortality, head-on, and
that would seek to hold you captive.
It's your raw honesty,
of leaving no words left unsaid,
that will find their way to be remembered by all who are closest to you,
those that matter most.
The world may never know your name
but your life impacts the kingdom of God none-the-less.
"Surely goodness, love and mercy will follow you all of your days";
so, while you're able, be the source of life to others:
Gift goodness, love and mercy wherever you go.
Don't hold back your smile, laughter, or joy; because,
If you're able to live without pretense,
and allow yourself to grow in character,
always seeking to become the best version of yourself;
It takes dying,
but not always literally;
it takes dying to self, most of all.
That's when we're at our most powerful:
Dying to self to truly give,
dying to self to truly live,
dying to self to cross our fears;
getting ourselves out of our own ways,
that's where freedom is found,
where our souls are free to
Giving my all to raise you up!
