FOR A NEW BEGINNING
In and out-of the way places of the heart
where thoughts never think to wander,
this beginning has quietly forming, waiting until
you were ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched your desire,
feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
noticing how you willed yourself on,
still unable to leave what you had
It watched you play with seduction of safety
and the gray promises that sometimes whispered,
heard the waves of turmoil
rise and relent,
wondered would you always
live like this.
Then the delight when your courage kindled,
and out you stepped onto
your eyes young again with
energy and dream,
a path of new plentitude opening
Though your destination is not yet clear
you can trust the promise of
Unfurl yourself into the grace
that is one with your life´s desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure; hold nothing back,
learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rythm,
for your soul senses the world
that awaits you.
- John O´Donohue
