The journey is never a straight path.
It moves in twists and turns,
rough terrains, bumps, potholes,
crossroads, detours and stop signs.
The journey is never a short trip.
Do you have it all? Did you pack everything?
Make sure you have your umbrella.
You may need it for rainy days.
The journey is never without help.
You'll meet people along the way -
they may travel a short distance
or take the whole trip with you.
The journey is never without hope.
No matter what stormy weather arrives,
the sun will shine again one day
and light your face and heart with light.
The journey is never without wisdom.
Face the lesson head on with enthusiasm.
Jot down notes, you want to make sure
to keep those lessons sacred.
The journey is never without laughter.
Opportunities for joy, happiness and love
are there in abundance.
The path isn't so tough and long when giggling.
The journey you walk is yours.
There may be those they will guide,
there may be those who will derail,
but at the end of it all, make sure the path you took
was completely and uniquely yours.
