Follow The Grain

“Follow the grain in your own wood.” (Howard Thurman)

The joys of authenticity
Come paired with the fear
Vulnerability brings
We feel open, raw
Scared, yes
But this is the way it goes
A little bit of this
A little bit of that
And we feel our way
We follow the grain
In our own wood
Only when we embrace
All that comes
With being alive
