Finding strength in our weight
Remembering sacred at every gate
No simple answers easy decisions
One foot then next endless revisions

Know joys that honor self
And the sadness heartsickness felt
Sitting on edge things unraveling
Voices at odds then a shattering

When young life was simple
Trauma an unwanted pimple
Older now know less and more
Complexity what we’re here for

Not easier moving down your path
Tests increase need a nuanced craft
When pressure more than you can bear
A road beckons from over there

Back to your time in youth
Expect resolution in simplistic truth
Those days in the distant past
Allow solace of your private mass

What provides strength when feeling emotional and spiritual challenges?

What moves, nurtures and sustains you?
