second tuesday in lent

“Lead me in your truth, and teach me,
    for you are the God of my salvation;
    for you I wait all day long.”  Psalm 25:5

though pock-marked with
bullet holes and hanging by
a single, rusted nail, i followed
the sign pointing down candor’s path,
and i was not disappointed
where it leads me.
though friends laugh, strangers
turn away in disbelief, and
the world mocks, i believe
you are the way for me,
and i will not be disappointed.
though the seconds tick slowly
the minutes move at snail’s pace
and the hours seem
to be more than 24, i wait,
and am not disappointed
