I’ve been tossed and tumbled in this place like a pebble on the river floor.
I’ve been pulled with the flow of traffic on this dusty street.
I’ve been shown my resilience through these peoples eyes
Their hardworking hands that give what they can
My edges have been softened by these children’s beaming smiles
My wit has grown stronger with these crafty salesmen’s hooks
My center has exploded with the burning fire of faith for all the questions answered and for those still wrapped in mystery
Another day begins with more lightness and more grace
With more trust in flow and pace
Floating with the current
Dancing down this street
Grateful for these feet
That have carried me so far
My eyes are wet with tears
As I try to contain my fears
And leave this land I love
I love, I love, I love.
