Life Is But A Journey


Life is but a journey
with a fork in every road.
Its high roads
and its low roads.
We as travelers
know only where we are
and where we’ve been.
Seldom, if ever
do we know where we’re going.
But we all
reach our destination some day.
Making our lives
and this endless journey

  27. How does one know if one has reached their destination? How do we know if we are going the right direction? Funny don’t you think, life has no “real” manual. Everyone is truly just winging it. We take advice from those older than us, and when it is our time to be on the older end of the spectrum, we impart what we’ve learned to them. Simple and complex, such is life.
