Destination and Journey

Finding something

After striving for it

Is better than an instant gift

Wrapped in a heart shaped box.

No destinations meet

When the journey isn’t exciting.

The belief in an ideal world

Only weakens the imagination.

We seek world

When what we really want is life.

Aren’t we mistaken?

Inner meaning to be something

Is the mantra to find life!

The world follows

And is found in its own spin.

The victory flag 

Needs to be fixed to the ground

To flutter way above

And bring the pride of horizon closer.

The heart doesn’t beat alone

It knows what other hearts seek;

Its beat is heard.
