The Road of Life

The roads we must travel are far and many,

There are several curves and forks along the road,

With endless storms to be weathered through,

Along with many dangers which are unforetold.

 

When we begin we are quite optimistic,

For we’re certain we’ll easily find the way,

We’re confident that life will go just as we plan it,

With nothing but sunshine and roses each day.

 

But then we discover life is not as we thought,

And we must strive harder to achieve every goal,

As we do, we may find a new facet to life,

Something we needed to make our life whole.

 

The real lesson to be learned is the one that is here,

Even though there’s a mountain you wish to ascend,

“It is good to have an end to journey towards;

But it is the journey that matters in the end.” 1

 

1 Ursula K. LeGuin
