Shadow

Today I planned to post Cinderella (Ever after) but God had other plans.

Shadow

You know that desert ?

The one you have been cursed to

The one that lasts for forty years

Maybe you haven’t recognized it yet

They all look a little different

………

It is only in making a lifetime of laps

and asking “why me”

that can lead to the abrasive answer

……..

Some things seem so far removed from the flesh

The complete opposite of who we are.

And no matter the efforts of mortal men

Or even the hopes of a good preacher

It is to the desert that we must be sent ;

For she is the last of skilled teachers

…………

If fighting demons was the obvious cure

Then I would dwell in greener lands

With the enemy mounted on my mantle

Conquered by my own two hands

…………..

It is only when we finally consider

That the master of all worthy foe

can only be found in the desert

Its reflection … our own shadow.
