Ten thousand easier ways

Spirit tells me that one of us seems to be unaware of

Where we are or where we are going, or

How we have planned to get there.

 

Planned? I don’t remember planning

This route through life.

There simply has to be

An easier way.

 

Perhaps there are ten thousand

Easier ways, He tells me, but

This is your/our way.

 

Did we draw straws or roll dice?

 

Neither of the above. Our way is

A gift that we have given to

Ourselves.

 

How? and Why?

 

Free will or, rather, the price

Or consequence of such.
