Clear This Path

Life can be – messy.



The path we tread

is often concealed by debris

left behind from the Fall.

It’s so easy to lose our way

when we are afraid to wade in,

engage with the  mayhem,

combat the clutter,

step on things that crunch

or go bump in the night.


if you hold my hand,

and I pin my heart to my sleeve,

we just might

muddle our way through.

Turn the tables on turmoil.

Clear this path.

    That’s nice, Melody–I like the idea that we don’t have to do this by ourselves; we can risk some trust, partner up = shared victories, eh? God bless you–love, Caddo

      I guess expecting it to be nice and neat is pretty unrealistic. Sometimes it’s nice to be ‘given permission’ to see it as a mess – and permission to know that it’s okay if things get messy. Thanks, Lyle!

  9. “if you hold my hand” is such a comforting line. We’re not left alone to tackle everything.
