Compelled to Wander


Alice C. Bateman

I am compelled to wander

Down paths I do not choose

You summon, and I wander

I try to read the clues


The clues that You lay out for me

That tell me where to go

And when I'm in the right place

You somehow let me know


I feel I'm in the right place

I feel it is the time

For something cataclysmic

For something undefined


I know You're here

I welcome You

With open arms and heart


I know You will tell me

Where it is

That I should start
