לך לך — Go to you!

לך לך — “Lekh L’kha” — Go to you!
No one can do it for you.
You must journey alone.
Go find your place!

It’s a big scary world.
Not safe and easy like Gan Eden.
But G-d promised to show you your place.

You’ll mislead yourself.
You’ll be misled by others.
Struggling to understand your place.

Fight battles with man.
Argue incessantly with G-d.
There is no known map to your place.

Where you go isn’t important.
Over time, the journey teaches.
Inside you, you carry your place.

Inspired by this week’s Torah Portion,
Lekh L’kha, Genesis 12:1 – 17:27,
and the story of Jacob/Israel.
