Your Journey…

May 10, 2008

I wrote this piece last year to cheer a friend. Because humanity is One, words have a way of coming full circle. She won’t mind if I borrow the pom poms for a sec…or two :-).

Your journey…
one not so easily traveled
too dangerous to complete with your eyes shut
except for the times you covered them up
fearing what else could possibly go wrong.

Your journey…
one not so easily traveled
requiring strength to carry all you own
except for the times you made it perfectly known
you could no longer carry you or your stuff alone.

Your journey…
one not so easily traveled
neither truly understood by those you call close
except for the Most High
who interpreted every moan and silent cry.

Your journey has not been one
so easily traveled
still…
you are graceful
finding your way
as the mystery unravels
revealing a purpose and a beauty in you
undisclosed this side of heaven.
