the way – getting paid – 9/27/12

I’m about to be let go, from a job that increasingly doesn’t fit.
I hate to quit. And dislike losing or having it demonstrated to me that there are things I can’t do. But eventually, even I can learn to live in new understandings of reality.

Now, do I trust enough to expose who I am to a self-centered paying world?

a change
a few steps
and it’s here
a slow motion door
is opening
as I’m being pushed through
a way out
and an entry
into an unknown

its expected
yet the experience
defeats the expectation
with full blown nerves
and some fear

have I grown up enough
to make the most of it


About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
