Here is an excerpt from Oriah’s poem that speaks so deeply to the heart. Her eloquence is inspiring.
“It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.”
