The Old Paths

Why do you still believe those
     who say they will heal your hurt,
          but do so only slightly, to keep you
               hanging on?

Why do you still listen to those
     who say there is peace, peace,
          when nowhere is there a sign of it;
               what is it you see?

Ask for the old paths I made,
     in them stand, walk, run, then fly,
          for they alone are the good way,
               and rest you will find.

Jeremiah 6:14-15
