Life’s Journey

on November 15, 2013

The journey along the rivers of life destines us toward many different shores. Along the way, choices must be made…the question at hand, this way or that? Much like the rivers that flow swiftly downstream, life glides along with ease. Then, there are those that flow against the norm making the way much more difficult. Often it is within those times of sadness and discomfort when we find renewed spirit, seek to aid those aging closest to us and face heartaches in order to experience joy.

Voyages: Life Journeys

life-is-a-journey

From the moment of birth
Our true destiny is set
To travel life’s journeys
Overcoming fear and regret

One day may be somber
The next, glad instead
As each new path of life
Reaches far ahead

Voyages all through time
Touch varying walks of life
Those of understanding
As well as those of strife

From a desert oasis
To a sun-drenched island
Warm amazing adventures
Surround life like a garland

Flowers of the fields
Covering land like the dew
Could be choking weeds
Or blossoms fresh and new

Pages of life’s scrapbook
May be ragged and torn
Filled with worn images
Of the lost and forlorn

Could chapters be rewritten
Granting ways to understand?
The journeys across life’s paths
Reach out with a helping hand
