Habits of His Heart

February 19, 2019

I'd like very much

to be your destination, 

but I'm okay

with being a step

to get there,

even if that means

you step on me. 

I'm okay

with being a step,

but I am not 

a stepping stone

on a path to still waters.

I am a step

on a creaky staircase

in an old house,

eccentric and charmed.

I am a step

on a tall ladder

leaving a dark basement,

exposing a bright light.

I may be a step to you,

but to someone

I will be 

a red front door 

on a white home

with a picket fence. 

You're missing out.
