Taking a trip to the other side.
Have been away so long.
Apprehension is irrationally real.
Can’t sleep at night because.
The world has changed but so have I.
How will we relate?
First step always most daunting.
Life is the Ultimate Journey.
That Journey is the Life.
Naming roads as traveled.
Course be illusively clear.
Many friends say “Come on”.
They do not see my fears.
Small number say “Stay put.”
Uncomfortable with the not well known
Unsettled all the time.
Never have been risk averse.
Will venture forward sight unseen.
To face a future’s dream.
Last night it was a nightmare.
Now it’s just a choice.
A firmly based commitment.
To my known self and others.
Folk on both sides raise some issues
and believe they speak the truth.
They do not know the questions
That shape the facts for me.
To dive in into a deep dark well.
May be leaping towards to clouds.
Will place me safely in a sunny place
Because the Son always shines.
I know on this I must reflect
Not worry about unknown.
Acknowledge who on all is based.
Say “Thank You” …and move on.
