Day 20 of 40: Preparation
Nerves burning like fire;
A potency longing to emerge
From inside the maelstrom:
Restless and searching.
Worries at the door of departure;
A new step into the unknown:
Out onto the land again
To sleep with the stars and the trees.
Leaving the comfort of the home and the known—
It never seems the right time.
The leap into a strange and foreign world
Is untameable by mind or thought.
So let me pray now to make this journey good,
Let me pray that I am held,
That what is given be received as it should.
Let me pray for protection and for guidance
So that I too may bear fruit to feed those hungry, lost, and misunderstood.
