Poem Number 8992
LIFE IS A JOURNEY
Life is a journey, a well traveled path
Littered with sorrow, wrapped in a laugh.
The paving is smooth or rough from the start,
Potholes of regret, resurfaced with heart.
Life is a journey, with detours ahead.
Lowpoints get flooded with tears that are shed.
Signs are all posted for all to take heed,
STOP! CAUTION CHILDREN
Be mindful of speed.
Life is a journey, so pack for it well.
Some days will be Heaven and others pure Hell.
Illuminate love when tunnels are dark.
If you get weary, pull over and park.
Life is a journey, the road map is vast.
Stop at the churches, don't wait till the last.
Stop at the schools to learn what you can,
Slow for construction, get out, lend a hand.
Life is a journey, already embarked.
Learn, love and listen.
The EXIT is marked.
great poem m.e. with lots of "roadsigns" of wisdom--but you know i kinda like to speed--i know--i know--i know--window watcher (the answer is yes--i have missed my turnoff a few times--funny thing though--i always found another road)
very nice, m.e., you've summed it all up so beautifully. ms.
Some take the Exit at "Wrong Spouse". As Betty Davis would say: "Fasten your seat belts. It's gonna be a bumpy ride!". Nice poem. -_ Morton
I don't see how spouse is derived from this poem except by a mind set. Life being compared to a journey or highway is familiar. I've been on a star trek myself.
Embarked from the house of usher
are you saying you're spaced out?
star trek comment means acrimony makes me dizzy. God says Trust me. I do and it goes away. Then clearer view of the heaven of Himself.
Great poem m.e. I can't find anymore words to say, it's just great! -mercurysmile ;)
there are a few comments suggesting ideas that otherwise wouldn't have been - took a while away from all this distress to see that some are on the good side, though some need more time. Be kind to each other loved ones.
this poem, on the other hand, is not one of my favorites.
...for the intentions behind it.
