On Leaning

by Alan Harris
Some think they leaned upon a stronger will
when all that happened was this will had shone
a flashlight on some girder, deep and strong,
within their own divinely buttressed soul.

Mistakenly, they felt this other will
support their own, when really, all are leaning
safe upon the same Eternal Strength
which none of us can own, but all may share.

The flashlight shows it's safe to turn within.

From the book Heartclips (1996)
