The Way

I never took the easy way,never took the pleasing way
buried my Conscience and dug up my essence on the way
Fallen heroes,friends and foes I met along the way,
found peace the strength that kept me walking
was released on the way as I lost sight of the stalkers and hawkers on the way,
I saw and was seen deep in sin
The light that lit the way was turned on
and I lost my breath needed to rest but not this way,Salvation I needed
Impossible to move, this became the perfect place to rest,
since it seemed impassible,thought it possible to stay
and make a better home along the way my thoughts began to stray
Rejection only made me more hungry for success,more angry for finance
because I knew this was only a pathway to the highway
I could travel the world but nothing comes close,
nothing compares to the feeling of reflection or resurrection of yesteryears
and the graduation of my generation from disgrace to grace
Charley’s horse caught up with me on the way
the pain only I felt as I knelt on the dusty floor
and felt for the counters along the boundaries of the way
I remember all I had encountered and found encouragement,
counting the blessings and the blessed along the way
as I remember I am still on my way and with these words
let it be known love is the way in my world.

Amm.. My Way?

The Way Of The Armchair

The Way Of The Armchair short poem

Four curved iron legs,a foam seat and a back rest keep it complete . I accept it isn’t anything unique i only want to ponder on its peak – the strength that wills this errorless control- inaction surely sloped into
