My help is in the mountain Where I take myself to heal The earthly wounds That people give to me. I find a rock with sun on it and a stream where the water runs gentle and the trees which one by one give me company. So must I stay for a long time until I have grown from the rock and the stream is running through me and I cannot tell myself form one tall tree. Then I know that nothing touches me nor makes me run away. My help is in the mountain that I take away from me. Earth cure me. Earth receive my woe. Rock strengthen me. Rock receive my weakness. Rain wash my sadness away. Rain receive my doubt. Sun make sweet my son. Sun receive the anger from my heart.
