Roundabout traffic in downtown of Hong Kong
Glowing. Shining. Bright.Beginning.
A vision to
Change my world
with words.
Thoughts crowd in.
Round and round and round
They go.
Will they stop?
Who knows?
Focus fogged.
Destination diminished.
Belief baffled.
Where to go next?
Maybe this is endless.
Maybe I shouldn’t do this.
Maybe I can’t do this.
Where am I going?
How do I find direction?
I need a guide.
And He comes
Holding out His hand.
I reach for it.
I hold tight.
We begin to walk.
Tentative, baby steps.
Cars whiz by going everywhere at once.
We plod along.
There is a way.
Soon, I see it.
The goal
Off in the distance.
It becomes clearer
With each step
Still following the leader.
Continuing. Deciding.
The circle begins to make sense.
There it is.
The exit.
The target.
The way.
I know the path.
It is written.
