Treading lightly for so long now on eggshells
avoiding the acrid shards of broken promises
in this life long draught of empty wells.
Measured steps strategically placed
absorbing momentum and slowing the pace
sometimes standing stagnant in terror
nearer another inevitable abyss.
Yet now this new perspective gives hope
forging ahead with a gait of intention
in a direction I’m certain is that of veracity.
Determined to journey another day
sustained solely in this pristine way
by the promise of a Love everlasting.
