Where This Road Leads

I know full well where this road leads
The end is my desire and goal
But I know not how long it be
Or what lurks beyond the next knoll
My Companion knows, but won’t tell
I must trust that He’s in control
He’ll never leave me as I trudge
Toward rest for my weary soul


The prompt at dVerse Poets Pub today is to write an octet with the road as a theme. For more road-themed octets, head over to dVerse and click on Mr. Linky.

This is also my Day 21 post for NaPoWriMo2015.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    very much like a Psalm…facing the unknown, but knowing the one who does know the way.

    I love this. It is nice to remember that we are never alone in whatever path we take and that wherever we go, there is only one ultimate destination. 🙂

  3. To have a companion to guide or support you through this path is wonderful.
    Well-penned. 🙂

    Linda, I think the Companion knows the route better than anyone. We just have to trust and follow the Way.

    I second Glenn, Linda. Your poem is a declaration of faith and trust but could also be read in a number of other ways.

    cleverly written; more than a declaration of faith, it could suffice metaphorically as several other themes; nicely done.
