Favorite poem, 2015

Standard

I like the poet’s voice. The question. The feeling of comfort in being lost, sometimes; knowing that I will find my way out, maybe to tell someone else how.

When you get lost

Tell me what you do
When you get lost
Tell me

Tell me what you feel
How things look to you
What happens in your head
What you say to yourself
Tell me

Can you see anything
When you get lost
Can you hear what’s about you
Do you perceive life at all
Tell me

Tell me what scares you most
When you get lost
Can you draw from deep inside
What you use to hold you up
Do you move yourself differently
Tell me

Tell me what you do
To reach that special calm
Can you direct a prayer
When do you know to wait
When do you know to risk
Tell me

Tell me wheat you do
When you get lost
Tell me

Then tell me
How you know
When you not lost
No more
Tell me

—Carol Prejean Zippert, from Leading from Within
