Before and After



I wonder what kind of paths I will find

Before you, my clumsy intentions found only testy roads
I got dirty
Mud up to my waste and I fought my way
Working harder to trudge through

Before you, my hardened disposition mirrored the way
My body touched upon hard falls
And I learned what my own blood looked like
I was never satisfied

There were dark days that had the face of virgin winters
Unfamiliar and so lost
Storm after storm sent me seeking shelter, into arms that were too weak to hold me
Safety, validation that my heart was still beating
Survival, surprise in the sunrise and wondering where I was

Again and again I saw distorted faces of my enemy
And I dreamed of things that left me yearning for light

The mystery has found its way to me now
On floors made of rubies
Emerald skies
Waking up and feeling all that is around me
Not just breathing
But being
Alive

Now seasons go by and I am dancing
Nights come.along where my feet don't touch the ground
When the storms come along i am singing

Purpose and will are my children
We plant gardens to feed the days
We rest and then we celebrate
We never lose hope or the resources to hope again

What will the road be like ahead
Heaven manifest
Bare feet lightly treading on designer grass
The sound of angels singing praise
Multicolor birds resting on sturdy branches that line the way
And I never get tired of wondering
What new way I will be walking with you

  Jaz,

I like this one a lot. It could be read as written to your husband, your love, or it can be read as someone finding God, and Faith. And I like each interpretation equally. This could easily be me at different parts of my life. I had some very self-destructive tendencies as a young adult. And although I was raised with a strong faith, I'm not sure how much you know about it until you lose it, or perhaps, can't really see it as clearly. I think both have to be tested in the storms of life to really be appreciated. This is going to my faves, so don't delete it!
