To know my place here, the culmination of past, present, and now –
requires awareness of my roots, where I came from, the events and experiences
dictating the path.
I now accept the path I chose, each bump, each divergement,
even the occasions when the path ended at the blue cliffs
overlooking the tumultuos waters, I stood there scared and scarred
pondering the next foot step.
Eyes closed I let go of that moment and my inner voice
decided where I went.
Return to the present, years past – lessons
remembered each day, their imprint visible
a reminder each day of where I came from and
in moments of doubt, I return back and
ponder in silence, allowing the memories
to surface and unwrap, lift the haze just
long enough to set my path straight.
