Searching for truth..


How slowly the time goes
when you are looking for truth
when you are clinging to hope
on slender threads
afraid they will snap
and you will fall.

How like a sticky spider web
the path I must walk
each lesson clinging
to my fingers and toes

I must stop often
and examine the pattern
for I must learn all the time
else why am I walking at all?

I work with my heart
and I challenge my soul
I bring bitter truths to the light
so they may dry in the sun
and turn to dust

I also bring forth gems
I didn’t know I had hidden
deep within my breast
where I nurtured them
unknowing
for a day distant
when they would be
treasured.

I walk this path
though sometimes I tire
and fear
and fret
and convince myself I am wrong
to try
to hope
to heal
but I know one thing
and that one thing
makes me stand
and walk this path.

Though my body cries out
in fear
in pain
in longing
one thing
the fact
the truth
the solemn knowledge
that my path leads
somewhere
I have never been
but have always wanted
to find.

I walk
and I hope
that I will know
what to do
when I get there.
