Uncertainty on Spiritual Path: A Poem
I took that proverbial road less travelled by
covered with roses along with their thorns
it often took me down and it took me high
but it taught me how to grab life by horns.
On spiritual path planning is an illusion
as we can never know how life may unfold
and looking for a certainty just brings confusion
for as long as we grow truth surely changes its mold.
If a signpost jumps up ahead with a "sameness" reading
prudence would suggest that we question our road
for there is no sameness where spirit is leading
it's a life stagnation with its unbearable load.
Life means change and life means growing
less than that means just our slowly dying
in our boat we are the only ones rowing
we can do it laughing, or do it crying.
Those who seek certainty of a rut
and their clear map of all roads ahead
might as well wake up leaving their eyes shut
for they may be breathing, but their spirit is dead.
