The View From Here

Join me in the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. Participants write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no backtracking. This week’s word is: View.


The view from here seems rather daunting
With all its unknown twists and turns.
This path that I have never trodden,
Looms large and dark with things unsure.
Will it be a happy journey?
Or will its burdens drag me down
To depths of strength I’ve not yet found?
The view from here might overwhelm me
If I should sit and dwell upon
The muddy puddles sure to spring up
And catch me without my gumboots on.
The view from here might overcome me
If I just look straight ahead.
But turning round I soon discover
One beside me, taking my hand.
He will walk this passage with me
And I will not be alone.
Should troubles come I need not worry
He will guide me to the end.


Now, your turn…


  1. The path ahead is always scary, and instead of enjoying the walk, I always seem to long for a map.

    Beautiful write. I always admire the poets out there!
