The Process of the Journey
The entire breadth of your life
is a journey worth taking
as long as wonderment and joy
never leave your heart.
Getting the most out of the journey
rules out any faking,
you must grasp it tightly
and run with it from the start.
Understanding that when we are born
nothing is owed to us,
making our own way is
learning from myriad mistakes.
This allows the triumphs and gains
along the way to be a plus,
with each lesson learned
you're allowed to raise the stakes.
Don't sit over in that corner
and ruminate about your desires.
tie your shoes on and get out there
to face the big world.
In each and every one of us burn
individually suited fires
but they never reach fever pitch
if you're fetally curled.
Assigning blame to others for
our own shortcomings won't do,
mentors can only lead you just so far,
and then you must solo.
Inside curses genes that were designed
to complete the real you,
your willingness to see them mature
is what allows you to grow.
