Not On My Own.

August 13, 2009

notonmyownNot on my own. Can i defeat this wall. Made of rock and brick stacked so high that i cannot possibly see the other side. Climbing, i cannot grasp any ledge. Jumping, i cannot find a crack through which I can see. Pushing, i cannot budge this mountain of mine.


Not on my own. I hear from the blowing trees all around. And from the storm clouds gathering far above my head. And just as the sun sets on the far side of the wall, I realize that time is catching up with me.


On my own. I could do it when I was running freely through the fields. Going where I desired to go. Spending my time however it came and then went. But now the day draws to a close. And here I am. Next to this great wall.


Not on my own. Will I get to where I have got to go. Though it seemed so easy at first. Now it’s not. And I wish I would have held on to what I knew was my strength. But I let it go in search of independence. And that got me here all alone. Beside this wall. Without anything on which I am dependent. Nothing to help me get out of what I can’t get past on my own.
