I still know what is worth crying,
what is worth breathing for,
what is worth gold.
Facing truth that the most holy
is fading in concrete proof
of weapons used
to help us forget roots and flesh
come from the same soil we desecrate.
All for the Progress
To conquer the Wildness
left here. left here.

I packed food, clothing and water.
Traveled to north country-
slept with the trees.
Silken rain quietly gave way
to sights of astounding white,
simple and fleeting.
Now the hilltops are crowned
as though beauty has found the best
way to articulate
how the heart comes to know
what is worth loving
and what is worth living for,
left here. Left here.

Stone give me body give me bone.
Mountain give me breath of my own.
Oak give me arms that can hold.
River give me blood.
Take me home.
Take me home to know
what’s left here.
