My soul had been darkened As I sought the light. All other doors had closed I thought one was open I wanted to enter in. “Perhaps there is a path I will try to follow it” Although my higher truth said no. Then the door closed I felt not anger but a cold certainty That this was not my way. I felt relieved to know it Yet warmth was missing. Then from an unexpected source came joy An opening to possibilities undreamed of It was a benediction, an answer to a prayer. The closed world is not for me My light burns again As I glimpse the pathless land And feel free once more.
