Walk Not the Path Alone
Twisting through the trees, a stone path, with snow
It is cold, but for patches of sunlight, the patches of good fortune.
Fear the way ahead, covet the path behind, twofold temptation
A two headed snake, to block one and be bitten by the other.
Wisdom, to crush both heads, to recognize neither trap
Of mindset and temptation of opinion. Here is the now
Take it and do, prepare for the journey ahead, learn
From the way already traveled, but do with caution;
No step can be re-stepped.
Pack water, food, and supplies for the way is long
And hard. Choose your path well, respect those
Who have walked your path themselves, their
Experience will help along the way. But above
All of these, find the light. He waits, and you know
Him not, for you know not your need.
The light on the path is not enough
Will never be enough to make
The path a road worth
The clouds and accept
The gift that lights
The way and gives the
