My Own Life's Directions
My North, South, East and West
My North is my higher power, my God.
My South is my mortal feet on the ground,
walking beneath my God and the Heavens.
My East and My West - is my lineage in time,
as I navigate through life and the abundance
of experiences it presents to me each day.
And, Like the hands of a clock, my life's compass
can't help but circle around my life.
North, South, East and West - My whole life's compass -
being a daughter, a mother, a sister, a friend and a wife.
As each new day unravels, I can't help but to encompass,
all of these intricate present's the day has to offer all at once.
Why try and make sense of the senseless?
And, why try and control that of which I have no control?
My life is what I can wrap my arm's around and my compass.
Let go and let life happen, follow your compass and you'll never
miss life's beautiful, bountiful experiences and, don't be in a rush or
the beauty could pass you by. Trust your compass.
