It picks you up takes you places near and far

To realms not contemplated sometimes with a jar

The inner realms the outer realms the high and the low

The dull pathways traveled and sometimes they glow


There’s doing and being and having too

You get to lead and follow each and every “you”

The journey you are traveling makes you smile and scream

Taking you to new heights shattering every dream


It’s not about what happens more about response to

The stuff that’s on the road you ride and who rides with you

There’s wisdom all around you in every leaf and drop

You find it in the wind and stream harvest every crop


The bounty that is growing along each curve and bend

Is there to teach you beauty from beginning to the end

Do not treat things lightly let your heaviness go

It’s not about the up or down it’s about how you grow


You get just what you’re giving you’re always paid in kind

The vehicle that drives you much grander than your mind

Please let peace be with you as value supreme

Have faith and have courage persevere and live your dream


Careful of the false gods< charlatans that fake

They do not bring beauty they do not give they take

Follow your own heart maps the ones burned deep inside

Listen those wise voices there’s magic in their stride


As your time grows quiet and you start smelling end

Double your aliveness get closer to each friend

Join with all the creatures in the sea and feathered too

What you view through your lens no less or more than you


How do you speak to yourself about your life journey?

Do you have judgment or do your reflections provide opportunity for learning and course correction?

Do you take the time to honor yourself for all the value you bring?

Do you do the same for others?
