Meeting Yourself Where I Am

Meeting myself where I am…

Through my tired eyes
I see the journey is much longer
Why don’t I use the map?
Is there a quicker way?

Why don’t I ask for help?
Is there an easier way?

Why don’t I want to go down that road?
What do I gain from staying on this road?

Why do I resist what I know to be true?
Isn’t that the harder way?

Meeting myself where I am
I can find the “middle way” and
I can walk on.
