Will You Ever Be Enough..

far away ~
long gone
my father
comes to me
in dreams
whispering reminders
of my compromises
and my failings

shall I be pleased
that he still cares
enough
to nudge me
beyond my fears
or will I allow
the waves of my inadequacies
churned into a froth
by his memory
wash over me
leaving me half-drowned
and gasping
clinging tenaciously
to my small accomplishments
against the receding years
pulling at my life

will I ever be enough
in his brown dominant eyes
or in my own
recessive blues
almost 60 years later
haunted still by
the measure of
whom he believed
I should be
and my own yearning
to be worthy

Prayer Paths

Prayer Paths

In one region of Africa, the first converts to Christianity were very diligent about praying. In fact, the believers each had their own special place outside the village where they went to pray in solitude. The villagers reached these “prayer rooms” by using their own private footpaths through the brush. When grass began to grow…
