East of Ordinary

There exists the landscape where

you take yourself by the hand.

Where you walk forward trembling with tears

running down your face.


West of Doubt

where you fear your greatness and

embrace it anyway.

We join hands and

listen for the whispers of how we each make a



North of Hello

we gather

the courage

for the doing.


South of Regret

we loosen our jaws, lean our shoulders away

from our ears

let our eyes turn upwards.

It need not be hard,

we have each other.


from The Life Organizer, by Jen Louden
