I stopped asking the wind
“What should I do with my life?”
stopped looking to stars for the answers.
I started instead to get real quiet inside
and listen for whispered encounters.
I began to hear ‘yes, go that way’
and later on, ‘stop, go no farther.’
I realized there’s a compass in me
that knows which direction to bother.
So now if someone tries to stop me
to tell me where I should go
all I need to do is get real quiet inside
and trust my gut’s ‘yes’ or ‘no.’
