Here to There

Sometimes the Path of Life

feels like the Path of Death.

I wish I could skip to the preferred end,

the utopia of dreams realized,

free from struggle, free from wont.

A place anywhere but Here.

Yet Here I am.

There looks so far away.

Elusive and blurred.

Distant yet near.

One quick twist, or one heroic leap.

and I will get There.

But the shortcuts extend the road

and intensifies the agony.

The more I avoid the road to There,

the longer I stay trapped in Here.

I must walk the Path

from Here to There.

And though the Path feels like Death,

it’s a Path that narrows toward Life.
