The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Humility

Barefoot and naked of breast I mingle with the people

Barefoot and naked of breast
I mingle with the people
of the world.
My clothes are ragged
and dust laden,
and I am ever blissful.
I use no magic
to extend my life.
Now before me,
the dead trees become alive.
