Misty Ways - Poem by Sam Pete

Just as everybody does
Every once in a while
As we make our way through
Our own queer vicissitudes of life
Trying our best to grasp
At the Omniscient

Even I am compelled to ask
The question “why? ”
W o n d e r why
Just wonder w h y!

And then it seems like its all clear.
All of a sudden
You see the path all paved
Even the milestones along the way

Till the next hurdle, that is
The next stumbling block
Looming large over the horizon

The closer you draw
The more bewildering it gets
Till you’re in the very thick of it

And then after a while
The mist clears
The path seems clear again

    In God's wisdom, he allows mist to blur our life's path in order to give faith a chance to grow. But in His time, the mist clears and we understand. Perfect 10. (Report)Reply
