Help Along the Way

Why does that which one needs

come at the last hour?

Better than not coming at all.

Suffering contains within it

the mettle of resolution of long-

held difficulties–a kind of

trial by fire–to see if

you survive its harshest

lessons.

The tunnel always opens

up at some point–a cave

you may have to turn

around and walk out,

starting again at a

new point.

I’m glad the days are

packaged into 24 hr

intervals–a chance to

start again comes often

enough to help you keep

the faith until the

morrow.

Looking for a brighter day

to balance with the

darker ones that visit

to impart their lessons.
