Straight path

My friendship with poetry has never been too intimate. During my exams in high school I decided chose the poem interpretation, because that way I did not have to write as much as for the other topics (if someone told me by then, that I would write a book, I would laugh out loud ;)) and apparently it did not go very well, because it was only rated a 4 (that would be an equivalent of C, I suppose). Later, I still had some closer and less close meetings with poetry, which had a bigger or smaller impact on my way of looking at the world, but what happened last week, was definitely a new experience for me. Thanks to Kacper from our post-academic community in my parish, for the first time in my life I received a poem written especially for me! My own, unique one and about the Person most important in the world for me. Read for yourself 🙂


Holding His arm,
on a straight path.

You for Him
You’ll be back home,
from where the purest …
of your desires.

He for you
Shade, warmth,
Milk, Life, and finally


I could read a lot from this poem. And it will probably tell me a lot, hanging over my desk, reminding me who my greatest Companion is – here and in eternity. Today, however, when I look at various things that seem strangely complicated, that “straight path” moves my heart deeply. This is one of the most important signs of the state of spiritual consolation, that is, the time when we feel closer to God and it is easier for us to follow His inspirations. Then everything becomes easy. Then we see clearly. Then love overcomes fear.
