Steadfast

Isolation breeds contentment

Living in one’s own skin

Keeping company

With the thoughts

That rise, unbidden –

There is strength

In the solitude chosen

When the paths fork ahead –

Following

In footsteps paving the way

Is the safe bet

And a choice made for us –

But to stand tall

Casting one’s branches

Against angry skies

Planting fast

Against any storm –

Here lies faith

And the grace to forgive

The self

That stumbles recklessly

Into fate ~ Caroline A. Slee
