Toir, a quest

It’s hard to make a recount
of my own journey - a religious life;
it’s like Odysseus adventures,
with so many tests and encounters.

I stumbled so many times
met different people; 
with certain personalities
that at times could be -
difficult to live by.

But the grace of God
hastened to keep me going;
led me to walk through
and be undaunted by rough times.

I think in each chapter
of my struggles within;
there’s always a whisper
where God was invoked within.

I couldn’t deny the fact
that his presence through the years
made me see what following 
or discipleship really means.

It cost a fortune, it’s a great deal;
that I need to wrestle with,
Be attuned to and focused on him
as my Master and Lord of all.

Those people that I met,
along the way in formation,
ministry and social affairs,
molded the wealth of my faith.

I thank and wish them well
for they made a big difference
in the so-called ‘toir’ within
that aims to serve God as his follower.
