My Dear Old Inner Elephant

610_unforgettable_family

Good Evening, God!

After I do my Centering Prayer . . . I do a sort of poem. And I want to share the one I did earlier this week. Why? Maybe because I need to remember to ask my Inner Elephant what she thinks?

Being me
 
What an 
assortment
Of jobs/callings and Challenges
 
Sometimes feeling
Like the parent 
Of many children
 
Other times
Like a RingMaster
 
Or the elephant Trainer
Slowly becoming aware
That the Elephant
Is much much smarter
 
Sigh
 
Did I say Yes to You
About being me?
 
And you replay for me
The old tape
Of me saying 
 
I WANT TO GROW
 
I want to say
BUT I DIDN’T KNOW!!!
But
Maybe
I did
So…
Overwhelmed
 
I laugh 
And open my heart
 
And go and ask
What she thinks
