Path Of Uncertainty

I wrote this the morning my Journey was suppose to begin, though I didn’t actually “leave” ’til the next morning…  -I do feel the “false start” that later insued to be a part of the Journey-  I ended up having to spend the day reorganizing, changing in and/or out a few supplies… 

Path Of Uncertainty


A Journey begins

before the dawn

only Hope remains

all else is gone.


Forever, once

was a Promise given

now blindly I go

by Love I am driven!


Shaky ground

to say the least

of this future’s path

be it famine or feast.


Life now decides

and sheer strength of will

whether I sustain

or pay the reapers bill.


Clinging to hope

and a wing on a Prayer

tomorrow we’ll see

what’s found, if I get there.

I am a Writer and Poet, Construction Worker with a Union, would be Organic Farmer, Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, and a few others. I would like to add a few more; Husband, father, .... the list will grow! I am currently working on personal growth, publishing my first book, becoming a Journeyman in the Carpenters Union, learning more of Gardening and Green things, and embracing Life as it comes! Life and Love are only as easy as we allow them to be, but are ever present, when we are ready to embrace them! Time is a tricky, devious thing, and Life is never easy. Nor should it be, the challenge is how we grow! While ever developing mentally and Spiritually over the last decade, The "obstacles to progress" are morphing into challenges to be met, and are ever changing. Such is the amazing Wonder that is Life, as we Learn, as we Grow! Too much structure is at the very heart of institutionalization, and not enough is the path to chaos. Learning that balance I believe is a Life-long challenge. One of many, as balance(s) is(are) ever changing too! All the while (and, as we ALL are...), I am, have been, and continue to be, so very Blessed!! Divine Providence, the "Finger of God", or even a reference to "Footprints"; all and more apply! The Energy of Life is all around us! Creating, Energizing, Healing, Invigorating! Life feeds the Energy of Life! Call It/Them how/by/what you will... Their presence and influence in and upon my Life has been amazing, and I could not, and would not, be who or where I am (NONE of us would/could be), without Them! Divine Providence, Creators/Masters of the multi-verse, the Spark of Life, the Energy that Nourishes, Higher Power, whatever/however you so choose to acknowledge our own smallness in the Universe! Without Their Love, Their Guidance, we are lost. We are sick, we are incomplete, when we lack the Faith to Heal and be Whole! I am growing, and Healing, and Learning, and am greatly in need thereof. But I AM growing, and Healing, and Learning! And so the Light "at the end of the tunnel" Shines ever bright! And Day by Day, I struggle, to be better than I was the day before, and to be prepared to be even better tomorrow! Hallelujah! Aloha! Namaste! As-Salàmu Àlaykum! Peace!

  1. Elron, by now you are at the end of your journey. I can only imagine the range of emotions you are going through.

    God does not waste anything we go through, stand strong in your thoughts about yourself and what you have done.



  2. You are so Right!!! 🙂 The Journey was a perpetual Blessing every step of the way! And I’m finding that I am having to re-learn my “social skills”, as so much time in my own head created a place where I came to grips with who I was, yet forgot how to be! LOL I will adjust, as my new Journey begins, and my Life’s work finds a foundation with which to build upon!
    Thank you for the words of Wisdom, they come with Perfect timing! 😀 Such is the continued Blessing, as Life (for me) begins anew!
