Still

By Emily Branigan, TIWP Student

I want to be where life stands still
to be in the forest alone.
But I’m never truly alone because I have the Earth
and She chooses to share Her life with you.
She shares Her mountains, seas, even Her dirt with you,
the dirt that has been walked over so many times only to seem to be waiting for you,
for your footprints
and for them to make a map alongside Her,
guiding you through forks in your path, through thick and thin.
And maybe one day your path will cross with anothers’
another who understands you even if they took a different journey,
another whose path may diverge, but you still carry with you in your heart.
But one day your path may pause and you will finally get to join Her,
back to your true center,
the Earth.
