A Road of Faith

Clear skies and clear sailing
A journey begins
And I think it’s always gonna be this way

Sea foam clouds gather up ahead
Perhaps I should reroute my path
Cause I think it’s always gonna be this way

Snow falling
Highlighting branches in silver tones
That’s the color I want to end with
Not this magenta that fades to blood orange
But I think it’s always gonna be this way

Now there’s a detour
And I have no sense of direction
I’m a fish in an aquarium
Trouble is I can’t swim
And I think it’s always gonna be this way

Words don’t help so I just go along
A vow of silence is a monk’s robe
But God sees the tears under the hood
And He knows it’s not always gonna be this way

Every road has twists and turns
Mountains and valleys make you sojourn
Blasts of wind and scorching rays
Each strike you blind
You can’t see your way
But each step of faith is a stepping stone
And will lead you safely home
And pearly gates you will surely reach
And once inside the words will be true
Finally, it’s always gonna be this way

Linking up with Linda Kruschke and paint chip poetry. The words are sea foam, aquarium, pearly gates, clear skies, monk’s robe, stepping stone, blood orange and the theme is ‘on the road’

  1. This is beautiful. I love the repeating refrain with a slight modification each time. I could really feel the almost-hopelessness of the first few “it’s always gonna be this way” — I’ve been there. But thanks be to God that it’s only true when we finally get home, and then it’s a good thing.
