Journey Through Life

Journey Through Life …

Do you ever think about where we are heading?

Life goes on and there is so much to consider.

Are we but pawns in the game of life

or do we have a say in where we are going?


Perhaps if we but try,

we can change our destiny.

Prevent that fateful hand,

from pointing us down a road,

we’ll later regret.

Watch for signs along the way,

as we journey through life,

take and make special each day.

Look for those flashing neon signs,

in the imagination of our minds,

that attract us and delight us,

just choose the right venues.

We cannot force change upon that,

which is immovable and unchangeable.


Is it really fate that moves us along?


Take a look back in time –

Are you where you want to be?

Are there still unfulfilled dreams

waiting for you down the line?


You took that train,

sign said Life,

but destination was unknown,

do you have all,

that it promised to show you

or did you get off much too soon,

at a station,

sign said Middle of Nowhere.


Let’s look at life –

like a ship that’s ever sailing,

let’s take hold of the wheel

and turn the sail toward

the winds of fortune.

Making sure to steer our life’s boat –

into that safe harbor,

where we have always wanted to be,

to achieve our heart’s desire.

Where love and laughter await us,

where we will forever feel safe

and know that we have a forever home –

where time and time again we are always welcome.

Consider how far you have come in this life

and look ahead to the future –

take a hold of what you can change

and rearrange and make life so much better.

    I like this verse Rasma. Life progresses and offers us up so many choices. sometimes we make the right ones, sometimes wrong, but even if we do choose the wrong road the obstacles we encounter are learning experiences. We can always turn off at the next intersection and choose a different path.
