Poem: The Journey

For some

It starts with a call

An inexplicable nudge

Hurled forth From the unknown That prompts us To ask of existence I wonder What more Could there be That, when I be it May lift my humanity Although the invitation May be obscure Its intensity is a force Hard to ignore Then comes the choice The freedom to respond To the invite In any way we want If we so choose To say yes to the call We must first Find the place inside Where desire And willingness reside To meet ourselves In the mystery of the unknown And with curious enchantment Gather the new seeds to be sown And from this place We partner with Life in new ways As foragers of the light We will use to shine On our yet to be travelled days We allow it to align us With a power lit from within And teach us of our bliss And unbridled might The kind that can transcend any dark night It teaches us how to die To everything we are not Each death revealing The wild nature Of which we have been tamed The kind of majesty That is yet to be named It urges us to follow our dreams And become a creator in the now As we learn to surrender Our desire to know how It shapes us through possibility And guides us through grace On this journey to the divine Which we have stepped up to face And when the journey is complete As I am sure it will be I will understand That my travels Have brought me Home To me.
