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
One thought on “The Journey We Must All Take”
Hope, Strength, Determination.
