Edges

Finding strength to carry weight

Holding sacred playing out fate

No simple answers easy decisions

One foot next continue revisions

 

Joy known honors self

Also sadness heartsickness felt

Sitting on edge things unraveling

Voices at odds soon the shattering

 

When young life seemed simple

Trauma an unwanted pimple

Now older know less and more

Complex experience we’re here for

 

Not easier moving down our path

Tests increase need nuanced craft

When pressure more than we can bear

A road beckons from over there

 

Back to a time in youth

Expectant triumphant simplistic truth

Those days in the distant past

Generate solace in your private mass

 

What provides strength when feeling emotional and spiritual challenges?

What moves, nurtures and sustains you?
