Mapping the Edge

You don’t need to do a thing.

Let the path be your guide

and wait

for a crossroad,

a stop sign,

a flashing light,

that can signal your destination.

Read the billboards,

the bumper stickers,

and the license plates

luring you to another place.

You have little choice

but to sit,

hang onto the wheel,

and let the pavement

design your travels.

Check the rearview mirror

as you leave the past

and accept what the world will offer

ahead towards the sunrise,

beyond the sunset,

into the twinkling stars of a night.

Press the gas,

set the cruise control,

and play that tune that brings

you back to the real you

as you allow the Divine

to map out the edges of your life.
