Barefooted Religion – a Poem by Kayla Mravec

Barefooted Religion

Unstrap your sandals of sensibility and shortage,

and step ahead gently towards a barefooted religion.

Really feel the cool breeze of peace

Heat daylight of pleasure

Cleaning, affected person rains

And the sort coming of spring

have a tendency the roots of your soul.

Every step an invite to grow to be and to bloom as you’re.

Every footprint an echo of your distinctive seeds of affection

for individuals who are and people but to return.

Might sacred granules of goodness

nurture your wildflower coronary heart

So that you could be come to know

the holy floor you inhabit.
