Walk With Me


As I think about what might be, I’m assured by your calm. If this becomes a great mistake of our lives, then undoubtedly, I will have made the most delightful mistake of my life.
As I try to gaze into the future, I see frenemies, friends and enemies as they stare at us, I see their distasteful grins as they watch and stare at the script that life has given us, I see them thinking ‘now it’s over, surely she’ll cry, now he’s done for certainly he’ll die’ and as I wonder what you have on your mind, I feel the presence as easily as I feel the wind, they are everywhere and as I turn I see ‘em, even in my sleep I hear ‘em, I feel them staring and pointing and gaping and laughing but I am strong.
I’m strong as you are and as I brace my soul for the brunt, I cannot but think that our souls are sealed on the scripts of fate, I cannot but imagine that I’ll go through hell and cast my future whatsoever away that this child should live if it will and that I will face this demon heads on and I will not scurry from that which a thousand men have seen and made a being in. They will scratch at us as easily as they did the saviour, but if you dare to walk this road then I am, just as you are and I will be wherever you are as much as it is in my spirit to be, if you will but walk this road with me.

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
