First, I wanted to be a veterinarian
and save the whales
Or maybe a biologist
and save the world.
But way before that,
I was an artist.
I could draw dogs and horses
All day long.
No one taught me this.
I just did it.
And people said I was a good.
I loved to write,
And make up stories in my head.
But I didn’t value those stories much.
I didn’t value my drawings and paintings
As much as I wanted to save the planet
But trigonometry hurt my brain.
So I ended up in the mind field.
Fixing me more than anyone else.
While God helped me
And taught me things
I needed to learn
About saving time for me.
Along the way,
I’ve saved dogs,
I’ve saved cats,
I’ve saved trees,
And God saved me some time.
Because the long and winding road
It always lead me back to my roots
Back to the work of my soul.
I love how this song can be about anything we want to come back home to.
