A Misty Path

The road is misty,
The sharp bend makes the vision hazy,
Nothing about the future is clear,
My heart just shivers with fear. 

What shall happen next,
What shall I do,
The future leaves me perplexed,
Have I done something wrong, I rue.

Questions are many,
Answers are few,
I feel so bleary,
So white and plain, without any hue.

My confidence is drained,
Self belief is at its nadir,
My wings are chained,
Absolutely nothing to cheer.

Question innumerable trouble my mind,
Gripping it with fear,
Is it time to leave the past behind,
And cross a beautiful frontier.

In God I trust,
In Him I have faith and belief,
I hope He guides me in moments darkest,
I pray He helps my mind effete.

He advises me to be strong,
Dear, It's time to put your blinkers on,
Just walk slow and steady, keeping aside your tears,
Every daze eventually clears.
