Crooked Paths

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 3:6

When life’s no longer straight,
as wintry piles of pain emit 
and dreary days are one’s fate;
when promises no longer fit
one looks to the opened gate.

Each tentative step seems to slip
and tranquility melts like snow
down icy paths on toilsome trip;
it’s hard to find a direction to go
for one’s only hope has lost its grip.

No shadow it too great to hide
or seek an awkward place to run;
if only one would truly abide
in the dear arms of Jesus, the Son!
Crooked paths can only divide.
