Solitary Sojourn

Walking what seems like

an endless path

of  unspoken words

a heavy burden

tears not cried

holding my heart prisoner

awaiting release

from life’s storm

yet grateful for

the comfort of 

Autumn’s hearth

warming my soul

Every Step Taken

In Response To:

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #115 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

The journey looks straightforward

as far as my eyes can see

then I begin one step at a time

in my stride I reach to where

my eyes could see before I started

and behold the path is no longer straight

it is broken, rugged, leading to 

places I did not intend to go

with obstacles, twists, turns and confusion

losing my way to becoming 

beaten down, weary, and ever so lost…

Then Love invited me to take His Hand

to lead me in a different way to walk this journey

a way called life still filled with the

same obstacles, twists, turns and confusion

only this time empowered with 

the Strength of Grace…

Sometimes painful, sometimes seeming hopeless

yet, for every sorrow, struggle and tear wept

there is a promised healing birthing the

scars of Ancient Wisdom gained that

brings with it a bold, confident courage to carry on

with revitalized hope and appreciation

for every step taken

Composed In Love

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Sangfroid

Your Daily Word Prompt – Lapse – January 14, 2021

With a lapse in composure

many things can be 

said and done that can

cut deep into the soul of

a fellow human being

leaving them broken and

feeling like they are worthless…

Let us be composed in Love

knowing we are all

precious and valued creations

of God

always conveying this truth 

to others in words and

most importantly…

actions
