He never said he was God.
Instead he left trails, dropped hints, footprints in the dirt.
He never said it would be easy,
Straightforward, or without its pressures.
He never said it would solve all our problems.
Or make life painless and trouble free.
Instead, he said he was the way.
He said the world would misunderstand.
He said there could be troubles.
He said his burden is light.
He advised us to think carefully before we set out.
He offered life-giving water to the thirsty.
He said, ‘Follow me.’
