Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

Lech Lecha 5773: The Journey

Go from your land, from your birthplace and from your father’s house to the land which I will show you.”
– Genesis 12:1.

Here’s a brief meditation on answering the call.

The Journey

There will come

A moment when

You must leave

What you know

On the journey

To find who

You can be.

You can be

One who finds

On the journey

What you know

If you leave

The moment when

Your time comes.

      Funny you should mention it, my dear friend Joe, because I thought I heard an echo of your voice in this one. By the way, there’s some amazing hiking here and a little history, too. I have a spare bedroom. (Hint, hint.)
