The Ancestors are waiting

It is a dark path. I can barely see my hand in front of me, and I feel uneasy. Who is on the other side? Do they wish me well? I walk, slowly, step by step, feeling the walls with my hands, stumbling on branches and stones. All of a sudden, fear overcomes me and my feet stop their movement. It’s just safer to go back, I think, and I recoil. But suddenly… I hear a song. Multiple voices singing together the most beautiful melody I’ve ever heard. And in that moment, I know deeply in my heart, I’m on the right path. Keep on walking, they sing… The Ancestors are waiting.
