Trunk of a redwood robust ballast
Others prosper drink from your chalice
Firm in presence sure of way
Comfortable steady rock in fray

Solid emergence taking over
After years tilling undercover
Finally transition inside
Within turns no longer hide

Dynamic presence standing strong
No fleeing know you belong
Rooted in wisdom values like rock
Steady pace like tick of clock

Power frightens vibe scares others
Especially those filled with druthers
Others admire things you do
Stay mindful all’s not about you

Primary focus giving to others
Make sure they’re ok sisters brothers
Traveling a path you scythe
Only aim narrow divides

What else might you do to take care of closest people, those in the next circle out and folks you do not know?
