Your life is in that place that wants to go out,
And find sacred ground, unknown.
You see most of your days ahead, and you wonder:
Does my path embolden passions I hold dear?
Tired of those thought purposed to teach
You ache to learn life all on your own.
You go, letting loose those deep waters inside you;
Those longings, which have made you their this-day home.
Will you hold close Mother Nature’s wise counsel?
And keep distant what your careful heart warns?
Going can give new life to returning:
To pursue and cherish YOUR life’s work.
May your search hone your passions and loves;
And honor your foremothers’ hard-farming lives.
They exampled lifestyles that may guide you
To THEIR sacred ground; this one, your Sure-footed home.
