Light a Path

Light a Path

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer

seeing your children in a dark place


Walking straight and standing tall

is who I am, since I was small.

Take the lead, when none is found

and soldiering true with all my might.

Coupling love to keep fear from flight.

Leaving my steps for all to see

Hoping my babes would follow me.

Strength I thought is all I need and a

Glass house for my progeny to see.

See, then do, and then become.

But nay, my steps could not be found.

Simple trues of a life tested

is not the path of the least resistant.                             

So with a timid hand and a plate of cookies

Momma will kiss the hurt away,

while you are in this darkened state.

I will not hold your age against you.

But light a path I hope will lead you.

Once illuminated

I trust to find, well planted feet

And a steadfast mind.
