My Emmaus Road

My life is a journey towards

the most beautiful of all destinations.

For now, I languish in the days of laughter and love. 

I dream and I think, and I believe.

It hasn’t always been this way.

The pull of the darkness had kept me from knowing

the joys of our Father.

The risk had always been

larger then the dream of reward.

For who could be rewarded

with the likes of me?

But no longer will I stay in the darkness,

for He calls to me. 

My step is determined,

it is guided from above.

I will only move forward,

although the words may bring me back.

I shall not falter, 

for it is through telling them

God’s grace allows me to go on.
