No Roadmaps Now (reposting a poem)

I posted this one early on…ran across it again this morning, and wow…it is really pertinent for me right now!  In retrospect, it turned out to be quite prophetic of how last year went, and I think that it continues to provide good exhortation.

 

No Roadmaps Now

You are going the same place
you always were.  We are…
all of us going there.

Blows rain down in cloudburst clamour
We are nails…we get pounded.
“God pounds his nails” the character said.

But it’s in your face now, it is in
your gut, gripping and gnawing
Who will you listen to now? The fear? The pain?

Rinse repeat, booga booga boo!
Their voices have no power but what you loan them!

And you need all your power to yourself.  Dare you empower yourself?
Dare you look past prejudices, religious fig leaves, the uncertain awkward fears
of the many who swim on the surface?  Their lack does not change the available!!

only the dandelions…harmless in appearance,
but the slightest puff and they spread thru you…and clone themselves
Until you are no longer a rose but one big dandelion.

Look not around to others…they are faithfully what they are…UNABLE.
you have no roadmap, you have no footsteps to follow
But you DO have a COMPASS…a SEXTON…
Instruments of old to navigate by Unseen and Signifiers.

You have a sigil…but it is called FAITH!
So get you up in the morning…sing
Wash your face. Sing  Choose your life today…Sing.
Control what you can, and all else hits the umbrella of SING.tumblr_n2a1kaiaac1red7huo1_500Blaze me a trail baby…for I am on the same path…
My body just doesn’t know it yet.  And along the way
I will catch up to you, we will walk
together, hand in hand into that night…

Fear not!  We know One Who has overcome that night
and walks in Day forever. Call out! There is no roadmap baby
Follow your heart…walk on the water!
What is there to lose?  Only fear and pain.
