I am embarking
On a journey,
Life it is called.
I know the route is long and tough,
But there are sweet-smelling flowers too
On the way.
I take with me some companions,
Faith and Hope and Courage,
To help me tread my path.
There are milestones on the way
That I have to cross,
Knowledge, Success, Fame and the like.
I’ll need to keep up
With my fellow travelers,
Who tread the same path as I.
‘Tis a long path that I intend to trudge,
With hills and rivers and seas en route,
But I cannot stop
Until I reach my final destination.
