Life is a journey...

Life is a journey, like a traveling trip on a train.

When we are young, we arrive at a station and press the button,
we buy a ticket, gather our things together,
and jump on a train to be taken to icognito, or a place that we know by name and yet do not know the road we travel to get there.

We never know if it will be a smooth ride,
but we always know that there will be bumps, and ups and downs,
so much so that you feel like you are on a rollercoaster.

We may be helped along the way,
have our luggage carried by friendly passengers,
be fed and clothed by those we travel with,
be entertained by people who you may only meet for a moment,
but that moment is a significant point of your life.

If we are lucky, we may receive communication from others, our past,
who check on us to make sure that we are alright, and we them.

We generally have time to sit by a window and watch nature and time fly by,
we do not go outside, but watch it from afar.
Knowing that we will see it again,
but enjoying it for not what we can do with it, but how we view it.
We sometimes

Seats may be comfortable, so we can sleep the time by,
and yet there are always those passengers, who we only meet for the briefest of moments, and yet wake use up to show us our journey for what it is.

However one constant usually remains the same.
When we finally reach the end of our journey, and our feet are steady on the ground,
and although we may forget our luggage or have a had a terrible time,
we usually have a smile on our face, just to let the world know that we have made it.

Life is a journey...
