Far from knowing who I am

I discover myself daily.


All over this body I find

old rocks and ancient wells.


Scars and burns mark

twists and turns


along the way

to where dark chasms and deep oceans



and to the secret treasure chests

I left for myself

all hidden away

so I would find them one day


and remember This…

Great Jewel of my Being.
