- This poem is inspired by Dr Seuss’ wise rhymes…
A road with no end in sight,
A journey that spans a lifetime, and beyond.
So many tempted to withdraw.
So few willing to let go. Our choice.
It takes courage and strength to initiate the change.
The victim in us remains eager to blame.
Who wants to turn inward and travel in the dark?
No map, no destination, just the need to embark
on a quest to a brighter outlook, a deeper awareness.
It is quite a challenge; no wonder we’re restless!
And yet, as we advance, often weary and blue,
Burdened by our losses and fears, our lives start anew.
The promise of the future keeps us taking steps
toward a light that flickers, a sense of progress.
When we’re ready to accept that we are not alone,
mountains start moving to give us what we want.
We regain our power to connect and create,
we set priorities; our passion cannot wait.
Out in the sun, at last, one thing’s for certain:
traveling is fun when guided by intuition.
And so we set out again, armed with hope and delight,
to pursue this journey to reclaim our birthright.
A road with no end in sight
A path that twists and winds: take it.
It’s got treasures to teach and
the reward is a life well lived. Take flight!
