Journeying Together

Journeying Together by Dale 

A hard worn mask

hides inside pain

     and smiles to the world.

To boldly go where none have gone

      shields up:

none can beam aboard.

         Surviving alone.

 

But a soul grows strong in sharing

    stories of a broken past

Knowing we are not alone

    weaves the fragile strands 

and finds

healing in the strength 

of journeying together.

 

Stumbling through 

the undergrowth

     the inner eye can't see

the path another may have worn

           struggling along

Surviving alone

 

But a soul grows strong in sharing

    stories of a broken past

Knowing we are not alone

    weaves the fragile strands 

and finds

healing in the strength 

of journeying together.

 

Weaving our shattered pasts:

Bound in common courage now

together seeking justice, 

together speaking truth

together marking change

     for those to come.

We find the way.

we share the way.

we light the way.

  by journeying together.
