I know where I am going,
But I cannot see the way.
I’ll be there some time years from now,
Though my heart is there today.
I’m listening for some guidance,
But it’s hard with all the noise.
Just one word would set me right,
If I recognised the voice.
I’m looking for directions,
That can point me to the end.
What if those I saw at first,
Are the only ones I get?
I’m waiting for a wonder,
That will answer all my prayers.
More likely perseverance is,
The road that takes me there.
And maybe when I make it,
And I see it all at last,
I can leave a lamp behind,
To light another’s path.
