A journey of faith.

I cannot see.
Somebody is covering my eyes, guiding me forward.
Step by step.
Very slowly, making sure I don’t hit the ground.
I am quite clumsy, there are times I stumble a lot, but the man always catches me before I fall face down.
We are going somewhere.
We are somewhere.
We have been somewhere.
He whispers in my eye that it’s a journey, and he isn’t opening my eyes till the end.
I fear it, and become scared of the road ahead as I am unable to see.
Every step is new.
Every step is a challenge.
I quickly learn have to rely on this man with everything.
Rely on myself and I fall.

I become aware of this man’s power and care for and over me.
And I question the identity of this strong and peaceful person.
He simply laughs gently and holds me closer, telling me to concentrate on the walk.
He occasionally and very softly directs my steps and where to place my foot.
Although many times I am not listening, wrapped up in the rush of the adventure.
I stumble again because I did not hear what he had told me, and again he catches me.

Along the way I get exhausted and tired of the blindness and stumbling.
I force a break and pause our journey, even when he urges to keep moving.
He’s got so much strength.
It annoys me at times and I realize how different he is.
I do not understand him.
He becomes impatient on waiting for me so he offers to carry me some of the way while I rest.
In his arms it’s so much better than anything I’ve experienced.
Warm, welcoming, loving.

He lets me down out of his arms carefully, he says as I walk I will become stronger and more comfortable in the darkness.
I stay close to those arms though, knowing, understanding and trusting that I am safe and I am truly loved by this man.

A journey of faith.

Artist's Description

I wrote this because I couldn’t sleep the other night and I had heaps on my mind. I feel my life is going somewhere new and unexperienced, I dont know what I’m doing or what to do, it feels like I cant see. I wrote this because its what I feel I’m going through and shows that I’m trusting in what I believe and that it will help get my through.
