To travel to the great world’s end,
Each carrying a different heart;
In this way they were set apart.
They came upon a lovely rose,
The scent no poet could compose.
This took one woman up much higher,
The other said, “But, the briar.”
The wind then blew them to the heights;
Above the sun to twinkle lights.
“I fly!” the one began to call,
The other was afraid she’d fall.
And so it went from day to day:
Each viewing life a different way.
One reached out saying “Come with me,”
The other looking back to see
What dangers might be coming nigh;
She turned away from brilliant sky.
No sooner had the journey started
Than the women’s ways were parted.
The one believed the Father’s cheer,
That there was never need for fear.
And that His love endures forever
For He’d leave her never - ever.
The other clung to the Deceiver,
Who made her heart a true believer
That trouble lurks around the bend
To bring her life down to an end.
Both were given the same gift
One joyful choice, one set adrift;
How great the one life’s choice surpasses
When wearing God’s love-colored glasses.
