i can’t see where the road goes

roadpoemnewyear

I can’t see where the road goes
As through the trees it turns
Though deep inside my heart I feel
A world of wishes burns

But still I follow after
The path my feet must take
Where what awaits is surely more
Than words or wishes make

So show me where the road goes
Or teach me: know I must
Beyond horizons veiled, things are
Awaiting me through trust

  1. Great poem, Deborah!!!! It really resonates with a lot of folks, I think… I know I certainly felt that way very strongly in my teens and twenties, and only lately have become more “steadfast” in the knowing that He does see where the road goes, and it’s all good things for me-His-follower, so it’s okay that the details aren’t being shared with me. πŸ˜‰

    But I think you’ve definitely caught the “haunting” aspect of facing a future we cannot know. πŸ™‚
    Great job!
