While cleaning my room today, I came across an old poem that I’ve kept for years. It’s one of those pieces of paper you try to throw away and then just can’t seem to let go of. I thought it was time I shared it with you.
I said to the man
who stood at the gate of the year,
‘Give me a light that I may tread safely
into the unknown.’
And he replied,
‘Go out into the darkness
and put your hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light
and safer than a known way!’
So I went forth
and finding the Hand of God,
trod gladly into the night.
– M. Louise Haskins (1875-1957)
