The Walk

Was I sent to be alone in this ramble.
Alone with my thoughts neath trees and bramble.
Perhaps to seek the daylight spawn of shining sunshine glory.
keep me wording then to do the things I may ask.
May my thesis enlighten my task.
Make me have wisdom on my journey this day.
To wander the way of boot stride path.
And keep me strong when thought flow aggrivates into wrath.
When stars shining the heavens,
may not look quite right.
Make me humble in prayer and wise.
Maybe this calling came spirit lead from supernatural ties.
Make me cope through the eyes of a child,
even though I am a simple soul.
As raindrops fall as tears from a cloud burst toll.
Let me have wisdom to succeed when tired,
and be oh so proud.
To unburden my memory chide of doubt,anguish and vocal sound. 
Always to be clear from self learned and taught.
And thus keep me from any giddy thought.
I am wandering with aspirations and with focused eyes,
to read the clues not as a fumbling man.
but as an agnostic spirit,
to record and formulate a plan.
