from here to where?

from here to where poem by steven james humphreys

life is a journey from here to where?

the rules of the road once unwritten

from where we had wished we were already

in much emotional hurry we failed

with such unthinking haste we won

we gazed back to what we were

forgetting who we wanted to become

we listened to the memory

of firm planted footsteps

between the olden buildings

echoing our truth mercifully crying out

it was us alone who wrote the graffiti

which unraveled itself in the stark stillness of a forest

once we were humbled kneeling in faith and prayer

we knew then that the dark hour of our soul was at hand.
