Poem-a-day #9

navigating darkness


Plans and visions
Some divinely inspired
Our want and need
To see through fruition

Countless possibilities
Each one disheartening
When life reroutes us
With its own destination

To a place perhaps
We’re intended to be
For reasons deeper
Than our own understanding

Trials and tests
In perfect design
Awaken us from
To a deeper sense
Of reality

Struggling to maintain
The illusion of control
Loss of enabling us
A shift in perception

Within the unknown
The key can be found
Unlocking mysteries
To the universe and self

Surrendering to situation
Refusing to be prisoner
Navigating the darkness
Finding inspiration

On the other side
Of which there must be
We emerge transformed
Because of the journey
