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

Poet: 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!"

Life Journey Poem



A Journey
Poet: Dr. M. Coleman Harris


Life is like a journey
Taken on a train
With a pair of travellers
At each windowpane.
I may sit beside you
All the journey through,
Or I may sit elsewhere
Never knowing you.
But if fate should make me
To sit by your side,
Let’s be pleasant travelers;
It’s so short a ride.

Roses and Sunshine
Poet: Edgar a. Guest


Rough is the road I am journeying now,
Heavy the burden I'm bearing to-day;
But I'm humming a song, as I wander along,
And I smile at the roses that nod by the way.
Red roses sweet,
Blooming there at my feet,
Just dripping with honey and perfume and cheer;
What a weakling I'd be
If I tried not to see
The joy and the comfort you bring to us here.

Just tramping along o'er the highway of life,
Knowing not what's ahead but still doing my best;
And I sing as I go, for my soul seems to know
In the end I shall come to the valley of rest.
With the sun in my face
And the roses to grace
The roads that I travel, what have I to fear?
What a coward I'd be
If I tried not to see
The roses of hope and the sunshine of cheer.

Our Journey
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

Our journey through life has its ups and downs
Sometimes feelings of being sad and others of a clown
We all have highs and the lows
Many happy times and times of sorrow.

But there is one factor that makes a difference
It is the attitude of your preference.
Do you look for the good or do you see the bad
Your attitude determines whether you're happy or sad.

Our journey can be negative or it can be positive
Is just depends on our life perspective.
No matter what happens, no matter the time
Find the good and upward you will climb.

Life is too short to sit and moan
Seize the good and it can change your life tone
Our journey through life can be a happy one
A positive attitude can bring more fun!

Life And Moods
Poet: Patience Strong


Moods will lead you such a dance -
If you just give them half a chance.
They'll lift you up and fling you down.
They'll turn a smile into a frown.
They'll drive you into black despairs.
They'll creep upon you unaware...
Your friends will drop you one by one -
no wonder, for there's not much fun -
in people who are bright and gay -
and dull, and bored with life, next day...
So don't be swayed by each new mood...
Just throw them off, or they'll intrude -
and spoil some bright and happy hour...
For you, yourself, give them power.
