It’s About the Journey


About a month ago

I was asked to perform a task

I thought was beyond my abilities.


It’s not important the task or the people

What is important is the door that opened.


My calendar was noted

for four weeks ahead


I wasn’t ready was my inside voice

Yes, I am was my quiet voice


I’m not good enough is my inside voice.

You are everything you need said my quiet voice


I imagined myself into panic

My quiet voice sat by me in silence


I imagined my failure

My quiet voice stayed steady.


Back and forth we went through the days

As I watched the calendar pass


Walking up one road of fear

And down another to acceptance


Little by little my quiet voice guided me

through all the obstacles I threw in my path


Little by little I found guidance

Inside and outside


An energy clearing here

A profound message of support there


I listened and doubted

I listened and watched the calendar


I discovered I am not alone

Even when I’m scared.


I ask for help and answers come

I say yes and find inner guidance


Day by day

Week by week

I changed

Until I was ready


And the appointment cancelled.

And I knew it wasn’t about the appointment


It was about the journey.


I learned so much

I cleared so much


Thank you for this journey

Through my fears and doubts

Through the mountainous obstacles

I threw in my path


The illusions seem real

The fears construct metal mountains


I breathe past my fears

I’m not alone


Now I’m prepared

Now I’m ready.


A Journey by Dr. M. Coleman Harris Life is like a journey Taken on a train With a pair of travellers At each windowpane. I may sit beside you All the journey through, Or I may sit elsewhere Never knowing you. But if fate should make me To sit by your side, Let’s be pleasant travelers; It’s so short a ride.
