Sojourner's Truth

Here I am so far from where I started

Knapsack light as it would ever be

Eyes somehow neglecting all the shadows

Full of daydreams and wholly free.

Then came all the twists and turnings,

Then came all the twisting knives.

And the watching, and the waiting, and the yearning

Seeing the stones in ev'ry one else's lives.

But now I'm here, standing in my footsteps,

And you in yours just alongside

And we are joining our purposes and journeys

I am soon to become your bride.
