It's The Journey That's Important...

By John McLeod

Life, sometimes so wearying
Is worth its weight in gold
The experience of traveling
Lends a wisdom that is old
Beyond our 'living memory'
A softly spoken prayer:

"It's the journey that's important,
Not the getting there!"

Ins and outs and ups and downs
Life's road meanders aimlessly?
Or so it seems, but somehow
Leads us where we need to be,
And being simply human
We oft question and compare....

"Is the journey so important
Or the getting there?"

And thus it's always been
That question pondered down the ages
By simple men with simple ways
To wise and ancient sages....
How sweet then, quietly knowing
Reaching destination fair:

"It's the journey that's important,
Not the getting there!"

It is the journey. I would like a few less paths to follow along the way but I guess that's what keeps it interesting.

It's always about the journey, for we will soon find out that we are already there, right where our journey is taking us.

Lovely poem. The journey is where we learn all that's important for when we reach our destination, and ultimately our heavenly destination.
