Move through life seeking center
First thought it resides in a mentor
Initially parents fill the need
Teachers then give us a creed

Religious affiliation career goals
Family friends spouses roles
It shifts place to place
Often outside our grace

Political cause an honored dream
Something simple or extreme
Notice all these things
External to a human being

As you keep moving about
Learning through all your doubt
Come to discover sacred source
Deep inside can’t divorce

Don’t be afraid follow your heart
That spark is your art
Stop seeking external validation
Accept your own inspiration

Is your ground external or internal? 

Do you make deliberate choices about your centerand how do they impact your life?
