New Beginnings

Psalm 25:4-5

Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.

Our lives pass fleetingly from act to act,

Guided by orderly underpinnings,

We are faced today with the brutal fact

Of a constant stream of new beginnings.

Each morning shines with life renewed,

Each evening breathes a closing sigh,

And another day passes for one more to rise.

The dawn does not care to exclude

Any gaze from hopeful eyes,

Upon new potential guided from on high.

-Michael Sweeney (The Cave Troll)
