Few confident steps on the unpaved path,

Some useful tools in the back-pocket,

Delving into deep unknown wilderness

Explorer heart craves to know more…

Looming fear-shadow gives company

Imagination conjures shapes, uncanny

Forge forward with knowledge nugget

Tenuous hope provides guiding glow..

The hand of Grace leads & protects

Extricates soul from abysmal depths

Fear evaporates into confidence air

Wrapped in love, surrendered in flow
