Prone To Wander

"O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here's my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above."

My tale is one of compromise. During the coarse of my journey compromise has been powerful and unique. It has had the ability to be a catalyst to truth. They say the most inate human reaction is fight or flight. This concept is far more extensive than originally intended. I believe it reaches into each and every aspect of our lives, not just the physicality of things. That is to say not just when confronted by physical harm or danger, but when confronted with any degree of anything unknown; regret, love, heartbreak, compromise. Me, I may as well have been born with bird bones; it was inevitable that I chose flight. This, however, is ironic as I chose flight as the weapon in my fight. One is bound to escape, to some degree at least, no matter the medium.

I did; I will - To the greatest degree possible.

My name is Joseph Colby.
