Mantra for March

I want to see the heart of things

to be okay with sitting in tension

to be at peace in the mystery

but brave enough to ask questions

I want to care enough to break the surface

to believe that my desire to know more

is not to pry, but to to care

to acknowledge that people matter

I want to do, not to simply desire

I want a head that asks questions

but ears that listen for answers,

to cling to a holy curiosity

I want to have my own opinions

but the humility to let them be molded by wisdom

I want to converse with my border spaces

and dream with my pen, my canvases, and my piano

I want to hold fast to someone higher

but to recognize my birthright as a creator
