Life Is A Journey...

Guest Author - Amy Packham

I was feeling a bit sentimental this week. I am going to be graduating in 4 months and I have begun to thought about my life after education - something I have been in since I was 4 years old! It is strange that we have the ability to construct our own life paths and yet we never know where life is going to take us... this poem was very inspiring for me.


LIFE IS A JOURNEY

Birth is a beginning
and death a destination
And life is a journey:

From childhood to maturity
and youth to age;

From innocence to awareness
and ignorance to knowing;

From foolishness to desecration
and then perhaps to wisdom.

From weakness to strength or
from strength to weakness
and often back again;

From health to sickness
and we pray to health again.

From offense to forgiveness
from loneliness to love

from joy to gratitude
from pain to compassion

from grief to understanding
from fear to faith.

From defeat to defeat to defeat
until looking backwards or ahead

We see that victory lies not
at some high point along the way

but in having made the journey
step by step
a sacred pilgrimage.

Birth is a beginning
and death a destination

And life is a journey;

A sacred journey to life everlasting.
