We don’t have to have an answer
For why things seem to happen as they do
Why not that?
Why not them?
“Ours not to reason why, ours but to do or die”*
When we listen to the teachings of the seven grandfathers
We come closer to letting go
Of everything we thought we knew
We release control and begin to grow
From the roots skyward
Growth that begins at the top
Never ever ripens
For there is nothing to sustain life
That is not rooted
In the truth.
The truth is in nature
The nature of the beast.
* Quote from The Charge of the Light Brigade by Lord Alfred Tennyson
