Blindfold Me

Blindfold me and send me walking
down a road fit not for man or beast.
Be it I who seeks this dangerous journey
for seeing joy and happiness ringing free.

Darkness sings through a victorious mission
where it severs the brightness of the day,
only when I concur this dreaded journey
will I be graced to see the light again.

Well spoken my friend  

"Over the winters glaciers
I see the summer glow;
And through the wild-piled snowdrift
The warm rosebuds below." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you both, I will get through it I just need to see reality and not the optimistic dreams that fairy tales are made of.

Blindfold me for I need no eyes
To still see light within my heart.
And Darkness bears no grim disguise
That hides love waiting to depart.

For there is no victory in shadow,
And the Sons warmth I will always feel.
For even in Darkness I know
There's always light where love is real.


Thank you, Gloria


Michael

Lost Dreamer-
Sounds like you know the way
to go ... just need a little help
reading the roadmap.

Prayers are sent your way
to help you on your journey.
The blindfold will be removed
by a power of light that will
light your way.
Love ya' ~*Marge*~

Very strong and nice images. I know how this can feel. And it is often true what they say about adversity aiding growth.

Oh my, rough times.  You will be in my prayers, may God see you through them!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

Thank you all, this was written as an inner response to a few friends sadness I always think so optimisticly that sometimes it clouds what's really happening in the world. Nothing really big, it was just my way of describing it at the moment and I suppose I treaded a little heavy on myself, but all is fine, the light never stopped shinning even though I tried to block it out for a moment.

Need to let your friends (and yourself prehaps) dump some of their troubles and worries in the dump truck and get rid of them!
