Labyrinth Song

Updated: May 2

How can I walk unhurried through the buzz-clang-flash of a pinball world

Take a calming breath in anger’s face and spy the fear beneath

Be the steady rainbow over someone’s troubled waters

Learn to ask for help when I’m the one floundering?

How can I defy my own impossibles, believing that the tiniest foothold is enough

Have eyes that look beyond surface judgements to see a winsome soul

Choose to face the light when shadows follow behind

Promise never to let a small beauty pass unnoticed?

How can I be a stubborn green shoot pushing through a sidewalk crack

Listen long and patiently to hear the whale in the ocean’s deep

Sing my own soul’s song, unafraid, unafraid

Let go of everything when its time has come

And hold on for dear life to love?
