“It’s interesting to think that no matter

how far you are from yourself,

no matter how exiled you feel

from your contribution to the rest of the world or to society –

that, as a human being, all you have to do is enumerate

exactly the way you don’t belong – and the moment

you’ve uttered the exact dimensionality of your exile,

you’re already taking the path back to the way,

back to the place you should be.

You’ve already found your way home.”

-David Whyte
