Lech Lecha – A Poem In Search of Oneself
November 13, 2016

By Rabbi Royi Shaffin
Lech Lecha
Go to you
Go for you
You! Go out yonder.
Lech Lecha
Walkety walk
Walkie Talkie
Lech Lecha
Go out
Go in
Go deep inside yourself
To find your self
Turn yourself
Inside
Outside
Like Origami
Twist and turn
Wear your inside on the outside
Lech Lecha
Show your emotions
Be real
To yourself
And to others
Lech Lecha
Go to a place you have never been before
A place you have never seen
Trust in God
Lech Lecha
Try new things
Explore the world
Meet new people
Find commonality with people you think you have nothing in common with
Lech Lecha
Feel emotion
Feel other people’s emotions
Be an open heart
Lech Lecha
Be like Abraham
Do that which is right
Smash idols of apathy and immorality
Lech Lecha
Don’t just sit there
Don’t just sit in one place
View life as a gift, a journey, an adventure
Sieze every moment
Lecha Lecha
Dream
Pray
Hope
Go out and make your most fantastic dreams come true
Lech Lecha to a place that only God can show you… and you shall be a blessing.
