Strength

Autumn leaf

Do you have the strength

To let go of the parts of yourself

That do not take root in love?

 

Let the wind snatch them

And carry them away

Like this painted autumn leaf

 

 

Time has come

To fulfill your destiny

This prophecy that shone

the night you were born

Watch the sky for guidance

Aim at the highest

the whitest shiniest sun

The brightest dream

of your heart

The one you’ve kept

preciously enclosed

within the dark drawer

of your fears
