The Second Journey


to follow,
steps hollow
as you run fast
leaving the past
in a cloud of dust.
You learn to let trust
and your senses guide you
on paths of life anew.
A second journey to seek
a new beginning, unique
to your own special gifts, revealed
by letting go.  Old wounds unhealed
are forgotten and a stronger heart
beats with joy.  You prepare to depart
from the safety of your hearth.  The world’s needs
cry out to you. Go with love where God leads.

      Thanks! This post was my very first one in the journey to write a poem every day for a year (Nov 2012-Nov 2013).

        That is so impressive. I’m just doing NaPoWriMo at the moment. I was a bit late starting and I haven’t posted daily, but I’ve written a lot of poems in April. I can’t imagine writing them every day for a year! Well done.
