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.
