To Be and Belong

To Be and Belong August 9, 2010

Let go your want for greatness

and feel the tool that’s in your hand.

Let go your fear of emptiness

and receive the wave still reaching

entangle you.

Only stars are free

and they are so lonely.

Curse what you will

but give thanks

that everything alive

wants something from you.
