I found the above quote
on the Angel Wings and Herb Tea Facebook page.

This year I hope to 
stand more steadily,
Barefoot on bare earth.

Feel a belonging to the country of my story
my native truth
my inner being.

I don't need to assimilate
Or unlearn my mother tongue
To understand the riddles of a new country.

I can speak my own language,
Sing my own poetry
and write my own story.

Simply, authentically, quietly my own.

Because that is the gift I was given
And the only one I can return
That will be of any worth at the end of the day

I hope only to stand on my own little wild scrap of earth
without fear or dismay
and connect fully and compassionately with others as they stand on theirs.

If only I may grow: firmer, simpler, quieter, warmer.
