Have you felt it?
That deep pull
to go explore
to follow the unknown
into
who knows?
If you have forgotten who you are
believed
the fairytales were true
about dark suits
and sharp lines
and tall tall rising buildings
and endless chatter
and mindless work talk vacant stares
and a wide gaping emptiness where you thought
you'd find meaning
and yourself
Past the labels
like Alice
all the signs
and a feeling of
being lost
utterly completely
with no one there
to come find you
Know that we are here.
We've gone before you.
We surround you with love
compassion
hope.
Follow the light.
It's there
in a smile
a book
a lonely feather
blown about on the empty street.
And above all
it's there
in the gaze
of the person
that stares back at you
from the mirror.
