Life journey seeking center
Think it resides in a mentor
Initially parents fill the need
Then religion provides a creed

Political cause an honored dream
Something simple or extreme
Teachers and career goals
Family friends spouses roles

It shifts place to place
Often outside our grace
Notice all these things
External to human beings

As you move about
Learn through all your doubt
Discover your sacred source
Deep inside no divorce

Don’t be afraid follow heart
That spark is your art
Why seek external validation
Why not your own inspiration

Is your ground external or internal
Do you make deliberate choices about your center and do they impact your life?
