The Journey~

The company you keep when leaving
will determine the quality of life
upon arrival
But the journey will neither reject
or accept your choices
The Journey will measure the strength
of their tolerance
The depth of their contempt
the shallowness of their character
The truth of their lies
the emptiness of their truths
The endless lines of excuses falling between
the fault-lines of your impatience
The Journey will pull your
very patience onto the pathway of

But your arrival would have filtered
away all remnants of failure
Quieted all rumblings of the impossible
Silenced those never having had the courage
to have taken their first step
now languishing in the distant echoes
of your past
The Journey would have strengthened
your resolve
Dismiss all contempt, deepened
your character
No time wasted on lies when truth
being so much more nourishing
And all your excuses would
have become a burning question
“Why did I not do more earlier?”
Your patience now being your indifference
to whatever fault-lines comes your way
singing praises in celebration
of welcoming another
Journey less day~

Glory be to the many on their own Journeys
Forever, your friend~}
