The Wheel

I will be as a broad and
Strong wheel, my rim
Rotating lightly along the
Ground as I roll forward
Inexorably and
Rise above each obstacle I
Encounter, not allow it to
Deflect my onward
Form.  I will not
Rise too high in air lest I
Lose contact with the
Ground.  I will not
Press down too hard on
Earth lest I impede my
Progress.  No.  I will
Roll forward smoothly neither
Too high, nor too
Low, just touching and
Resting lightly on God's
