inner compass

exactly how i got here
i cannot say
but i began to pay attention
to my dreams
and i followed the trail of crumbs
left by the authors
whose books i read
i pushed "pause"
and asked questions
and for help
i shed many tears
and a few skins
i explored new
and ancient paths
i surrounded myself
with people who believed in me
until i could believe in myself
i found my center
and followed my bliss
and found this...
my inner compass

I love this Stacy. Your poetry is so powerful, yet simple and universal. AND I love seeing it paired with your mandalas. Sure would make a lovely book.
