Other people’s souls bared

Show me barren places they visit

And where I too sometimes live

Looking around

Looking within

Feeling that I am lacking

Or that things are not good enough

And yet does the oak tree think

Am I enough

It simply stands straight and true

And holds up a canopy of green beauty we can rest under

Is it part of our human becoming

That we feel the need to become more

Have we forgotten how to simply be

To find the beauty in this precious moment

When our heart is full of pain

Can we kneel down and kiss the earth

Honoring the truth that we live

On hollowed ground

And are within our deepest souls
