The Journey That is Life.



This is a poem I wrote today.  I hope you enjoy it.

My Journey:

I have made a long and winding journey

To arrive at where I am.

It has been fraught with smiles and tears,

Perhaps more tears than I would have liked,

But it was my journey to make.

I have made a long and winding journey,

To be understand much better who I am,

Conflicting personas and ideas to sort through,

Jumbled sometimes,

And like a tug of war

Dreams to decipher, mine and those of others,

It took a while to figure out whose were whose,

An interesting journey,

But it was my journey to make.  

I have made a long and winding journey,

To know my spiritual and vocational path,

That to has been filled with smiles and tears.

However, once the muddy waters have cleared,

The crystal lake appeared,

I knew that to inspire and heal,

Some tough love along the way was the path.

This path, journey may not be everyone’s cup of tea,

But it was and is my journey to make.
