Take Care – Michael D. Higgins.

In the journey to the light, the dark moments should not threaten.

Belief requires that you hold steady.
Bend, if you will, with the wind.
The tree is your teacher, roots at once more firm
from experience in the soil made fragile.
Your gentle dew will come and a stirring

In the misery of the I, in rage,
it is easy to cry out against all others
but to weaken is to die
in the misery of knowing the journey abandoned
towards the sharing of all human hope
and cries is the loss of all we know of the divine
reclaimed for our shared humanity.
Hold firm. Take care. Come home together.

– Michael D Higgins
