Beginning

New Bamboo Leaves

GO OUT IN THE WOODS, GO OUT. IF YOU DON’T GO OUT IN THE WOODS NOTHING WILL EVER HAPPEN AND YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BEGIN.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés

There’s always someone to stop you,

even when you’re running for life,

even when you’re preparing to

wrap your bubble.

But if you know how

to run faster than the rest,

if you learned how to look

at the world confidently

once again after the pause,

you won’t lose the race.

*

There’s something new

in every chapter of our fables,

something that nobody

cared to notice until now;

put your real self

between those pages,

maybe scribble your

footprint in white ink,

so that someone lost in time

can follow your light,

and mark another beginning.

    1. Thank you very much, Indira. The quote is from one of my very favorite books- Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés.

So what do you think?
