The journey of life Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

The distance seem so far:
my destination,
very vague and uncertain.
So many distractions,
so long the time
since I started this journey.
It is so daunting,
seemingly insurmountable.
But alas! I have learned
that nothing in life is to be feared,
it should be understood,
it should be mastered,
that life is a journey…
A war
with so many battles to be fought,
so many battles to be won,
some to lose
and learn from.
On, I intend to continue to march,
quite sure I am succeeding,
quite sure the future is now.
Left, right, left, right…
I am on my way.
