Autism: C'hele's Story

Poetry – The Cobblestone Journey

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 21:30

cobblestone-path

Cobblestones.

It is all that I see in front of me.

Presenting a path that is lengthy and broad,

It brings to light of the journey that is always in front of me.

Some cobblestones are cracked.

Some are broken right through.

I notice that some are only chipped

Many, are scuffed too.

Every cobblestone is imperfect-

Just like you and me.

And the wonderful thing about looking at them is,

Is how each and everyone of them are so beautifully unique.

As I walk forward on my own cobblestone journey,

I become innately intimate with every cobblestone that I encounter

And I know that each cobblestone represents something different-

Every unique person that I have met,

Every new experience that I’ve encountered,

Every sacred moment that I witness in the everyday ordinary.

I am humbled to find the Invisible Teacher within all these wonderful things.

As I walk my journey, many of these humble rocks lend me strength in times of need.

However,

If I don’t remind myself to look up once in a while,

I forget to see the Truth in front of me.

  2. Hi Vron. This stupid site. It wont allow me to edit properly, *sigh*

    Anyhow, Thank You! I’ve considered publishing my poetry but like everyone else out there who is thier own worst critic, I think that perhaps I’m not good enough.

    Thank you very much for your compliment!
