Respecting the awesome power of words!

On the Road Again


I'm not sure it's possible
to reach our deepest desires
without passing through
some very powerful fears.

On the road toward love –
knowing and being known –
we must cross through
the intersection of the despised.

Not all knowing ends
in love and acceptance;
some relationships are t-boned
at the intersection
of spite and rejection.

After such a painful collision,
it takes courage to get behind
the wheel and back on the road.

All the while,
love keeps whispering,
"Follow me. This is not
the end of your journey."
