Retreat

Retreat to move ahead
when the crossroads
lead in opposite directions.

Retreat to move aside
when the conflicts
tear asunder peace and pride.

Retreat to steady on
when the waters
pin you against the rocks.

Retreat to steady on
when the tide
roils with muddy clarity.

Retreat to learn
when ignorance
beckons you over the cliff.

Retreat to learn
when pain
pushes you toward desperation.

Scream if you must, cry as you will
but retreat for sanity and for wisdom
before you move this way or that.

Do not jump to conclusions
nor settle for lies and deceit
for there is Truth yet to be told.

Listen and wait until you hear
Grace, Love and Healing
so in retreat be still.
