The voyage that is me,
A journey of one lifetime.
Images projected upon a blank screen,
Adventure, hope, and discovery align.
Travel varies with each dawn,
And shifts through to twilight.
Closed eyelids carry me through,
Dreams in my mind’s candlelight.
Terrains vary, water changes tide and depth,
Mountains must be conquered.
Boulders and pits are to be avoided,
Learning and growth are necessary verbs.
There’s love and there is heartache.
Newness and painful loss.
Wisdom and sustenance are required,
God’s guidance and strength must be sought.
I participate on this privileged voyage with passion,
Knowing my journey of one covertly unfolds.
With determination and perseverance,
I live each moment, and seek tomorrow’s unknown.
