This is not a contest--
or if it is, then only between
your past and present selves.

The award doesn't go
to the one
to finish first, but rather
to finish best,
having collected the most
scintillating, heart-bursting
moments of joy,
the most tokens of genuine
affection,
and the fewest
moldering regrets.
