POEMS: “Life is a journey”

“Life is a journey”

 

Birth is a beginning

and death a destination

And life is a journey:

From childhood to maturity

and youth to age;

From innocence to awareness

and ignorance to knowing;

From foolishness to desecration

and then perhaps to wisdom.

From weakness to strength or

from strength to weakness

and often back again;

From health to sickness

and we pray to health again.

From offense to forgiveness

from loneliness to love

from joy to gratitude

from pain to compassion

from grief to understanding

from fear to faith.

From defeat to defeat to defeat

until looking backwards or ahead

We see that victory lies not

at some high point along the way

but in having made the journey

step by step

a sacred pilgrimage.

Birth is a beginning

and death a destination

And life is a journey;

A sacred journey to life everlasting.
