The journey and the destination

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Ernest HemingwayDSCN0085Six billion souls on this planet each day

With fresh hope set out on their way

Ostensibly to their places of work, their vocation

In reality, searching for the one destination

The fabled land of contentment profound

The land where perpetual happiness is found..


Six billion souls, many often tend to forget

At the end of life’s journey, all they would regret

Is not having enjoyed each moment of the process

Having spent their lives chasing evasive success

In trying to race towards their destination

With steely resolve and grim determination

They never stop to smell the roses on their way

Miss joie-de-vivre of their journey, day after day


Interwoven in the fabric of each life is the thread

Of happiness, which lies in the journey,instead

Of being parked at a specific unattainable location

Let’s enjoy this journey, not focus on the destination!
