Life continues to surprise me
the acceptance of the inevitable.
I wonder how Hope walks
following Life with a lamp
treading on corpses of Trust.
The miracle of respiration
in the ever-changing direction of winds.
I look back on solitary footprints
and gaze at the conquered mountain peaks.
Who carried us thru’ it all?
Deriding enemies, backstabbers and traitors,
I continue to seek companionship.
I am in awe of the sailing ship.
navigating thru’ Power and Greed
staying afloat to meet an anchor.
The undercurrents of Faith surprise me
in the overarching theme of Existence.
