This short poem is based on Bethy's connection of John 16:12-13 and Hebrews 5:12-14.

John 16:12-13
"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will tell you what is to come."

Hebrews 5:12-14
"In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil."

Carried by the hands,
taken along the path.
Crawling along the path,
bounded by the rails.
Toddling along the way,
directed by the string.
Walking in the direction,
guided by the signs.
Running towards the goal,
following my heart.
