a journey new and exciting
embarked upon by a fool
soaking in the pains
reveling the pleasures

the road found him
eager for the destination
and slowed it down
for introspection is imperative

thriving on the arduous walk
the fool became the learned
realized destiny and destination
are constructs of imagination

for the journey is what matters
to learn what’s important
life is memories,  disjoint
no start, no endpoint
