The poem...

This is a poem I wrote in response to the prompt we were given "I put on pilgrim shoes"

I put on pilgrims shoe
on a journey to proove
that we are free to move
closer to the truth.
Like a balm to soothe
the heart that bears a bruise
standing on the edge with one breath left to choose
to take one more step
a leap of faith
a drop of hope.
Seeing I'm not at the end of the rope,
choak-ing out another breath
never knowing how much is left
for.. the path ahead
the journey we must tread
for the hands and feet that have already bled
of the bridegroom to whom we are wed
Fed by bread and wine, fruit of the vine
that someday this life would no longer be mine
A sign, any time I tremble or shake
I remember he died for our sake.
