What lessons am being asked
to learn from this life?
Why the rain?
Why the storms?

Why am I so
inadequately prepared?
What am I being asked
to discard?

Unneeded layers
I've wrapped myself in
given to me
by well meaning ancestors
trying to protect me
trying to prepare me

But now they are
and restricting
preventing me from
living as I am intended to live--
wrapped in the arms of God.
