oh one on this path, how happy i am you spotted me here, for i just stopped to encourage you dear.

awaken a place within to observe all that's true.absorb grace as it surfaces, Heavenly granted and due.

miraculously we've arrived amidst so many blessings to pursue. hold on tight to places you came from, seeking places prepared for you.
remain open, hosting the spirit to shine, grow, and roam. with open eyes, mind, and ears, as each step returns home.

you were designed to walk this path - so there's no need to rehearse. no one else holds your significance in this universe.
