The Anchor

All I know and hold dear;
Norms, values, ideals and beliefs;
Community, family and friends;
Hold me securely
On a firm foundation,
Regardless of how the winds blow.


Ah let the waves rock me;
Numerous conflicting opinions;
Contradictions and paradoxes;
Honest differences
Over all that life brings
Reasoning that defies logic.


An anchor in my soul
Never lets me wander too far;
Corrects my course and draws me back;
Helps me consider
Other alternatives
Reminding me of who I am.
