The Souls Path

I travel the road set before me,

Though the destination’s unknown.

With trust and grim resolution;

I know I must journey alone.

But others travel around me.

And our paths meander and cross.

Then forks or a rocky embankment;

Leave me searching, my Soul at a loss.

With faith and some apprehension,

My fear dissolves in delight!

As a new road forms there before me,

And I take the path to the right.

Mountains swell all around me,

Their summits lost to a storm.

Then I notice the road ahead falters,

And I drop to my knees, my heart torn.

The road behind is but a memory,

A shadow is all that remains.

But the darkness glimmers with wisdom,

And I see all the lessons I’ve gained.

So with one step I tackle the mountains,

I endure the wrath of the storm.

Some Souls travel beside me,

While others leave me lost and forlorn.

When dawn caress’ the morning,

And the road is again straight and true,

I find I am so much the stronger,

The disappointments I hold but a few.

The Soul travels a journey,

From birth to the heavens above,

Though the road is often rocky,

It is made easier when there is love!
