The Calling

All that glitters

in the night,

in the rain,

in the quiet stillness,

isn’t what you’ve wanted,

what you claimed,

what you worked for,

what you told your friends

and family you desired.

It is something

much more precious.


It is something that

you’ve longed for

as a child,

as an adult.

It means more to you

than love,

or inclusion,

or reverence.


It calls to you

in the stillness

of the night

in your dreams.

I reaches out to you,

beckoning you

to step out into the storm.

You hear it whispering;

“Come find me.”
