A Long Walk

There are days
     when all that 
     can be done is
     put one foot
          in front of the other
          it all begins again.

There are days
     when it is all
     we can do
          to keep picking them 
          up and putting them
          down as fast as we can
          just to keep from falling
          forward onto our faces.

There are days
     when the steps 
     are lonely
          the journey
     the fog

There are days
     when the steps
     are light
     the company 
     the journey
          nothing but 
          fantastic dance.

Oh Lord
     in all these days
     these long walks
          short runs
               mad dances
let me
     with You.
