I have experienced it.

alone in the world with an on-fire knowing at the core of my being.

a knowing that says, in love, and clearly, “no.”

and choosing to honor that “no.” it takes tremendous courage to say: “my heart will no longer abide my continuance on this path.” when I do not know how to walk a new path. when I cannot see a new path. when I don’t know how to forge one. when I have no one there to walk with me.

and I step. knowing only that I must.

and

and

and I stand alone there, in the unknown.
foreign, but alive.
lonely, but familiar.

I find myself there. alone. in love.

and then, after a time,

I learn how to forge a path,

and then, after a time,

I find a cool stream to drink,

and then, after a time,

I find signs that others had walked this way before me,

and then, after a time,

I find a tool and I move more easily,

and then, after a time,

I find the path, already cleared,

and then, after a time,

I find a friend,

and then, after a time,

I find a clearing.

In the clearing I find my family, waiting for me.

they find me, finding myself,

in love.

and

and

and our hearts beating in love, we walk back into the thickest of the unknown, when we cannot see the new path. when we don’t know how to forge one. knowing, together, that we will find ourselves, there, in love.
