preacher boy

she was near blind
from starvation
struggling to walk
in the dark
with you on her back
she could barely
make out the road
by the moonlight
reflecting off the dirt
at one year of age
you pointed the way
saying “there. there.
there it is. there it is.”

have you always
been on a path
that leads you
to lead others?
