Wilderness Wandering

by Mark Weinrich

I’ve waded through
thorny thickets,
struggled through
cavernous canyons
lost in the abyss
of my own understanding.

Why would I wrestle
exhausting myself
searching for solutions
when all I needed
was to stop and pray?

My intellect, my human
striving, will never
be a substitute
for Christ’s ever ready
