This Journey That Is Mine

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

My Experience Is–

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.
