The Path #FMFParty

I wanted to write about the path of righteousness, but my mind has taken me down a different path today

The Path of LossPathofLoss

It’s a long journey
The path is crooked
It goes up and down
It winds around
Taking you down a path
You never thought you would go again

When you think that it is coming to an end
It loops back around
Jerking you into the stark reality
That the journey is never over
The path just gets wider
Easier to manage

The path often takes you back
To the beginning
That first loss
And journey’s you along
Through additional losses
You have faced through the years

You still cry tears
As if it just happened yesterday
But Yesterday is gone
And the tears just come in floods
And then dry up
As you move past the moment

The memories still come
And sometimes they bring a tear
Other times a laugh or smile
The loss will always be there
But so will the memories
And that makes the path worth journeying on.


This post is part of the link up for the Five Minute Friday over at Kate Motaung’s Blog , where you write for Five Minutes on a specific word and the goal is to just write & no editing. (It is supposed to be a free write)

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.

    Your poem is beautiful- and so true that the path of loss is not an easy one or a straightforward one. I love the sense of hope at the end:
    “The loss will always be there
    But so will the memories
    And that makes the path worth journeying on.”
