In reflection

The first day back

From the uphill battle, this dark twisted alleyway with many illusionsThe past six months

Only small glimmers of hope shrouded by doubtThe next few weeks

An arduous struggle, although a welcome oneThe end in sight

Like a runner on third, yearning to be homeIn reflection

“Behold, I make all things new”

    This is a prayer that has helped me through many hard times:

    How easy it is
    for me to live with you, Lord.
    How easy it is to believe in you
    when my mind reels from not understanding,
    or when my mind weakens–
    when the most intelligent people cannot think
    beyond the evening and do not know
    what must be done tomorrow.
    You convey to me the
    lucid assurance that you exist,
    that you will see to it that not all paths
    toward good will be closed.
    At the peak of earthly renown
    I look back with amazement at
    that road which by no stretch of the imagination
    I could have devised–
    A remarkable road through despair
    which has led me here
    where I too have been able
    to send mankind
    reflections of your rays–
    As for what I
    won’t have time or ability for–
    This means that you have
    reserved it for others.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn
