Do not try to serve the whole world

or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create

a clearing

in the dense forest


of your life

and wait there patiently,

until the song

that is yours alone to sing

falls into your open cupped hands

and you recognize and greet it.

Only then will you know

how to give yourself

to the world

so worthy of rescue.
