Back From The Other Side Of The Road
The path I walked for so many years has been torn up.
I cross to the sidewalk on the opposite site of the road.
And then one day the barricades are removed.
A freshly paved path lies in front of me.
Step after step, I walk for the first time
Forward on this new path.
With a new and strong resolve.
I am comforted and filled with gratitude.
And I am encouraged once again.
