Uncertainty on Spiritual Path: A Poem
I’ve been on a road less traveled by,
covered with roses with their thorns
it took me down and it took me high
but it taught me to grab life by horns.
On spiritual path planning is an illusion
as we’ll never know how life may unfold
looking for certainty just brings confusion
’cause while we grow truth changes its mold.
There is no signpost ahead worth reading
and it’s usually too late to take another road
no promise of comfort where spirit is leading
turning back to sameness just unbearable load.
Life is change and life is growing
anything else means slowly dying
in our boat we’re only ones rowing
laughing as we may or maybe crying.
Those who seek certainty of a rut
and a clear map of all roads ahead
might as well wake up with eyes shut
for they are breathing but spirit is dead.
