Old and New (September 2005)

Another one found on a scrap of paper...but this one I understand because it is daily a part of this journey I take.

Old and New

I know that which draws me
down this old familiar path.
It is a well traveled and
comfortable road.
But there is a new trail that
in times past I would not have seen.
I do not know where it comes from
or where it goes.
It springs from a place in my soul
long hidden or newly dug.
I stand upon the intersection of old and new.
Both roads beckon me forward
and yet the choice is not mine to make.
For I am unable to escape
the roads that chose me
At intersections long ago.

I like this piece, it expresses the truth about the conjunction of what is divine & our attraction to it. In my own personal experience, when I arrived at that crossroad, I simply became the chosen one. JRG
