Words of the Times

We walk in the world
with steps faltering and learning
off balance more than not
while muscles learn and grow…

Time favors stepping out
and hopping, running, skipping.
dancing to musics heard
both within, without…

Days and years pass
with steps certain, confident
ambling through a life
but not in charge…

Until the sudden day
when all around the world shifts
gravity goes sideways
streams flow up,

Intents, designs
our plans all fall awry
certainties dissolve
fears rise, tears fall

Steps falter, once again
illusion of control 
goes out of reach,
we again are children

We again are children
in something greater’s world,
our only recourse
once again is faith.
