Walk or Follow

How is it possible
To walk many roads
All at once?
How can one arrive
At numerous destinations
All with quite different 
Landscapes and weather patterns?

It feels jarring
To be on one road
Then suddenly find yourself
Walking another
In the blink of an eye
Or the in the speed
Of one’s emotions

Could this be
Why Jesus
Savior
Friend
Fully God Person
Who operates across
The divide 
Of human limits
And divine impossibilities
Could this be why
Jesus said “Follow me”?

He becomes the path
That coalesces every other path
And makes it possible
To travel many roads
And yet find one’s self
At one destination
The place of peace

Maybe the call is to look
To Him
And let the roads
Be whatever they will be
That seems better 
To me
