My Crazy Camino

I’m sure I’m going crazy
I’ve lost the way I’m sure
What started out quite easy
Is mired in thoughts unpure

My intention, all along has been
For penance take my place
Among the thousands on this path
Through God’s amazing grace

Get first to St Jean Pied de Port
Bust ass up winding roads
Reach Roncevalles panting, struggling
Shed off the extra load

Come to the realization
Though alone, there’s thousands here
They’ve walk, and toiled and died
Yet, for each the Way was clear

Now I’m not speaking of religion
Be a pilgrim in purest sense
But more, in understanding
That it’s here we cross the fence

It’s lapsed, or graced or searching
Can there be a Way for all
Is it hurts and tears and yearning
That proceeds us for we fall

Can we take without some blessing
Is there hope, where some might fail
Is the laughter in the refugio
Strong enough to light the pale

I’ve a mission, NO… a journey
I seek guidance not a plan
I need seeds that bloom each Spring time
I need trust in fellow man

I’ve not met the folks I’ve come to trust
But, their words ring true to me
Sometime barbed, touch soft…demanding
Yet, as true and true can be

Johnny Walker, keeps me focused
Then there’s Cecelia to prod my brain
Add to the mix, sweet Dire DrE
Who knows the value in a name

Then there’s, Br David, Charles and Ivar
Who without their words we all
Might stumble in the darkness
They “yell out” avert the fall

Vinovinto, he’s my brother
The unwashed, won’t understand
I take strength from his sage wisdom
Every time he writes…Ma Man

There’s more I’ll come to know soon
But the one who guides my path
Is Sil, my Camino Angel
Focused more on strength than wrath

So, as 2007 leaves its days behind
And the New Year takes its place
May your God, or strength or feeling
Stride beside you every pace.

Buen Camino…my friends!
