...soul journey...


The Soul’s Path
by Deborah Soukup

I travel the road set before me
Though the destination’s unknown
With trust and grim resolution
I know I must journey alone
But others travel around me
And our paths meander and cross
Then forks or a rocky embankment
Leave me searching, my Soul at a loss
With faith and some apprehension
My fear dissolves in delight
As a new road forms there before me
And I take the path to the right
Mountains swell all around me
Their summits lost to a storm
Then I notice the road ahead falters
And I drop to my knees, my heart torn
The road behind is but a memory
A shadow is all that remains
But the darkness glimmers with wisdom
And I see all the lessons I’ve gained
So with one step I tackle the mountains
I endure the wrath of the storm
Some Souls travel beside me
While others leave me lost and forlorn
When dawn caress’ the morning
And the road is again straight and true
I find I am so much the stronger
The disappointments I hold but a few
The Soul travels a journey
From birth to the heavens above
Though the road is often rocky
It is made easier when there is love
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

Cup on garden path—
whether it’s full or empty
I shall drink from it.
