Discernment

Who would have guessed?

Who could have known?

how life can change in a blink,

how futures become outgrown.

 

A simple commitment – a Yes!

begins a journey of change,

a threshold reveals a new door,

desires are now rearranged.

 

Who would have guessed?

Who could have known?

how the path I took for granted

was suddenly overgrown

 

with assumptions no longer true,

with a fog obscuring the way

which leads to a fork in the road –

should I go or should I stay?

 

Who would have guessed?

Who could have known?

at this seasoned point in my life

a new road would be shown.

 

Should I go or shall I stay?

Is it far or is it near?

When the dense fog bank lifts

what new choice will appear?

 

Who would have guessed?

Who could have known?

Wisdom’s plan all along

was to lead me back home.
