Do not try to serve the whole world
or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create a clearing
in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song
that is yours alone to sing
falls into your open cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.

Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to the world
so worthy of rescue.
