The Growing Way

Growing pains make young joints ache

Waking in the night to jolts of pain

You can’t abstain from the growing

 

Growing pains make young minds race

Wondering what’s to come in the coming days

The unknown next doesn’t stop the growing

 

Growing pains make young hearts reach

Watching for answers others might teach

To seek is to start the soul’s true growing

 

Moment by moment

Step by step

The journey of growing

Can’t be skipped

But how you grow

Is yours

 

Struggle

Striving

Trying

Lying

Thanking

Praying

To-self-dying

Surrender

Pleasure

Performance

Grit

Live in the moment

 

Everyone grows up

Not everyone grows deep

Choose your path

Your soul to keep

Many paths, trails, and ways

But only One

To forever

Peace.
