The Pilgrim's Way
Published in Thou Art: The Beauty of Identity 2017
Oh soul, you came a long way.
You showed faith and devotion,
stripped the veil off your ego and
revealed your essence,
your thirst of pure fresh water
cannot be quenched
by finding the wellspring.
Don’t stop here, don’t turn around
as all you have endeavored
will dissipate in the river of life.
Keep walking traveler,
catch the breath of the winds,
witness the hushed dance of the leaves,
touch the footprints of the ants.
Take time with the way
walk it slowly
make it your own life’s ritual,
do it every day and know
the way of the pilgrim
is the way of the heart.
