The Journey We Must All Take

This poem was originally published on 25 September 2012. It appears in my debut anthology Wildflower Sea available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo Books.

Life’s a journey and I must stress
That there is quite much to say
For you’ll have your airlifts and turbulence
And that’ll mean that you’re on your way

There are calm seas and a fair share of icebergs
If there weren’t - something would be surely wrong
But use that icebreaker in your head
And soon you’ll be moving along

Stretches of well paved roads and the handy pothole to wake you up
I'm not talking of the USA so set your mind and please buck up
You’ll have to step on the gas and sometimes slow a little down
But if you apply the brakes it’s for sure
-  To nowhere you’ll be bound

On pavements you’ll jog and sometimes across the unforgiving road
But don’t go in a circle just run on
For where your heart lies is your home

Your Dreams and Thoughts will be your guides
Yet misleaders they can be
It is up to you to cling to them
But don’t let them cling to thee

Life’s the greatest experience there is
And there is quite a lot to learn
But with Death doesn’t end life as it is
For the soul goes into eternity thereon
