In that liminal space from childhood and adulthood,
A young person considers maneuvering the world alone.
Butterflies tumble in her stomach at leaving her tribe,
But the tendency is to stop childish things and act grown.
Looking into the greatness of the evening sky above her,
Her smugness at acing the layers of education she has achieved
Is replaced by a humility in reverence to the line of stars
That looked upon the world long before she was conceived.
They have directed people’s paths through life’s uncertainty,
Servings as oracles of direction for those who’d lost their way.
Somehow she knows that whatever trials and troubles come
The One who created moon and stars will be with her every day!
So, she will not fear what the future holds in store for her,
Because of the purity of God’s unfailing and amazing love.
His methods and thoughts are higher than even the sky,
And she believes that He’s watching over her from above.
