Stripping off layer after layer
of the old perceptions,
your Core begins to emerge.
You feel raw, exposed,
yet at the same time,
Because you knew it all along.
There, hidden beneath your weather-worn,
fragile human shell,
is all of your accummulated Wisdom.
The knowingness gleaned from
eons of existence.
On this planet.
So you stand tall.
but never breaking.
For even if a storm is upon us,
your roots go deep, and deeper still.
Keeping you anchored,
so you can rise above the fray.
And even in this fragile state of becoming,
you know you are indestructible.
