I awaken to something awry, I float as a 
Wanderer between the plains of day and night
Amidst the clouds and winding streets. 
An outward compass points opposite the right
Yet, an inner voice shall be my guide

The moon shines in the sky so bright
And the sun awaits it chance to break day
What feet shall travel this road tonight?
Where there is no room for the hearts of the faint
Hurry calls the callous compass, do not stray…

However, the inner voice tells me, Not today
For the route the compass must take 
Seems easy enough, for the fool to follow`
But the long winding road journeys 
Towards brighter tomorrows

No longer adrift — it is the Way of Truth
That this once wandering soul now follows…

    This is a very moving write for me. I love the title of the piece..the words brought me in and I was set aboard the seas drifting out to nowhere..rather cool and peaceful. Thanks for reading my work and I look forward to reading you more.

    Adell, this is such a spiritually inspirational poem! I'm glad the "once-wandering soul" is no longer adrift. Faith truly saves, doesn't it? There is so much truth in your beautifully-composed words. And thanks for your comments on "Crosses on Canopy Road." Our county commissioners think saving trees is more important than saving human lives.
