Feet on the Ground

Many paths lie ahead
You ask, which one to take
At your heart’s leading
One step, you make

Feels right
Feels wrong
Feels good, or bad
The road, for sure —
Almost never certain

Obstacles along the way
Hurdles that make you stumble
Mountains so insurmountable
Landmines of life —
Pain, discouragement, despair

Stand firm
Two feet on the ground
Look upwards…then inwards
There is hope, strength — and
The ground
Still beneath your feet

Steady your spirit
And step again, forward
Because you can
When your feet
Are firmly on the ground.
