TITLE: In His Footsteps (Revised)

Come as you are' and my sandals waited, empty, at the door
For me to step into them and into the Light.
They're just sandals, yet are biblical somehow.
Brown, strappy, strong, they look set for a journey.

'Come as you are'. My feet to follow His footsteps?
I found little within me of which I was sure
Myself only known darkly, like a bulb underground
Perhaps, soon, a flowering, maybe just like a crocus.

'Begin as you are' yet, so far, it's a 'tending towards'
Constrained within, to forge a new centre and a middle way,
Unknowing Love, or that love releases, nor how time deepens,
Nor that colours brighten and blend, unknowing how lovely I am.

A life once lived on the edge, now rooted in silence
And noted in journals. Am I sum of all that I ever was?
Long travels within to seek soul & authenticy
And my sandals, also still, wait for me out in the sun.

Yet, now I can 'Come as I am, garbed in His acceptance
Brightly I come in my flawed perfection, adorned in pale purple.
Planted in good ground, rooted in all that is; in simplicity.
Self-conscious in sandals and believing in my first steps.
