Thick Skull Teaching


Getting it through my head.

Old ideas die on the vine,

strangled by new desires,

open eyes,

and pretty lies.

Take some time to get there.

A slow and easy ride.

New companions join me

as we take the next horizon.

Turns out I’m not the only one

trying to fix

what I have broken.

Not alone in searching

for a door left open.

Change is just as easy

as waiting by the shore

for the tide to come in

and take me away.

But I’ve never been the kind

to wait for the moon

to move me.

Will any of us learn?

Will any of us see?

Pushing new ideas in

through my thick skull

has never been easy,

and I know I’m not the only one.

Strange as this journey’s been,

it just gets stranger.

Reach on out to God,

and He sees me waiting

for the next fork in the road.

How can something so simple

be so hard?

Jailbreak my programming,

one day,

one face,

one choice at a time.

Over the next mountain

we climb.

Forward motion

without knowing

where I’m going.
