Knew it was A risk in the wilderness
but had the calling to come
since he was a child this was his aim
at first the weather was fine
he had brought minimum provisions
seen this place in his visions!
This was his predestined lifes mission
had prayed for guidance
had worried parents from a young age
dedicated and well-studied
at twenty knew told them he must go
his family’s misgivings did show!
That morning he set off on his mission
rode his rebuilt motorbike
an emotional parting then he was gone
happy that day had come
parked then carried a large backpack
heading up the twisty track!
Now absorbed by natural surroundings
within his own thoughts
seemed oblivious to the many creatures
was contented raising his arms
praying loudly and walked as if guided
all needs would be provided!
Had no doubt waited his whole life for this
by the fast pure waterfall
drank the pure nectar and settled down
nightfall rapidly approached
under the stars at last he was satisfied
his future would not be denied!
He had no fear knew god protected him
this was a hallowed ground
here was untainted by mans savage hand
within was purified of his sins
now with the power and love in his soul
was ready to accept his role!
Headed home ready to become the good priest!
