Joseph’s Doubt

The journey was harder than expected,
his early optimism disappeared,
each step burdened as they plodded ahead,
with an unknown future to be feared.
He heard an unbelievable story
with strange pictures and difficult feelings,
by the woman he loved uttered purely,
honestly and he believed her: truth rings.
But tomorrow is always different
then yesterday’s final preparation.
“How could I know what the miracle meant?”
he asks, his heart aching with the question,
ashamed of the apology he spoke,
as if he were newborn and just awoke.

Merry Xmas
Ben Gage
