This is my beginning

For I’ve chosen the end.

No longer trailing along,

Lost in a desire that weakens my soul,

I now walk barefoot.

I confidently sat on a pedestal

Almost engraved with my name,

But as quickly as I was elevated

Tumbling down I came –

I was now on the backburner.

See last night I prayed.

Leaving behind what once held me high,

Shedding the layers that eventually

Dragged me down,

I just prayed.

My plea was answered before I even began.

Yet there I prayed – seeking reassurance.

Going back in time,

I realized I was driving past exit signs

Time after time, disguised in numbers –

Each representing the many occasions

I wished to retract on my journey

And many of my regretted actions.

But God spoke to me,

Forgave me for the guilt I carried in the backseat,

Buried with accessories necessary for one’s travels.

This expedition had an expiration date

From the moment I agreed to ride.

But this is my beginning.

And I smile because now I just drive –

Drive on a freeway at a comfortable speed

Windows down,

Hair blowing in the wind,

Sun kissing my skin…

  1. And isn’t freedom delicious! I, too, am just beginning to drive – and that taste is absolutely refreshing!
