Within you dwells a wood – 

there are trails, some old and overgrown,

others fresh-cut and, between them, wide

open spaces filled with untamed growth.

In those woods you are every age

you have ever been, every age you will be.

Those woods walk up the mountain and over 

the other side; those woods go on forever.  

In them stand ancient trees, sturdy, scarred

and thick.  Those woods whisper

your name, “Be who you are,”

they sigh, “this is all that was ever needed.”
