As I stay the path that is mine
Before me are wonders of thought
Knowing nothing that may develop
But sure of faith in believing
Encompassed life toils the days
There to there, from place to place
Grievous moments at times sustained
Clouds above shield a cloudless sky
Questions race through spaces of time
As time grieves for naught of man
Ticking the tock by way of seconds
Wait not, moving onward and on
Doors to open, thresholds await
My beating heart pounds its beat
Fear questions the faith of belief
Faith overshadows, doubts perplexed
Crippling trials of tribulations’ bliss
Surely the journey teaches, learn I not?
If not…blame I me, not life
Teach me, this journey that is mine
Here I sit all in wonder, the past few weeks I’ve been waaaay down under.
Feeling better now not totally sure, what brought the change, to my door.
I received a message from a dear sweet friend, telling me to get it together I can’t pretend,
That I’ve not been myself to do and create, but Someone else who had taken a stake
And drove it deep within, my very being, causing such a stir I was not singing
Nor feeling very jolly, but stiff as a board to be used as a dolly,
To move objects, from here to there; now that the cloud is gone and in the air,
Is the feeing of hope, and as I tried to cope,
I did my daily prayer, and wondered then, what I thought was unfair.
Why do these things happen to me? I give of myself totally free,
Of seeking in return a favor or two. That’s just me, and how I am through
And through, but still I wonder at times, and know to be true,
That coming from this I will be stronger and wiser. I will take this experience to use as a visor,
Because when the sun is bright I want to see, and use the visor—God’s gift to me.
