Dear Journal + patrons, this poem is deceptively little, speaking volumes about a core grappling in my life. Here is the photo from the original entry in my journal, and below are the words. Do you relate to it in some way in your own life?

I feel lost
I had to cut from
The roots
Handed to me
Because my soul
Is rooted
In something else
Something greater
