“Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.” Matsuo Basho

Living Now

When the journey ends

what will be your question?

did you fight every battle,

scour every mountain,

struggle every track,

suppress every complaint

that dwelt in your mind?

or, did you notice that not

every trail was a wrong turn,

that some wrongs were rights?

Have you noticed that the

journey is a series of deviations

the sum of which is our lives,

it isn’t the getting there,

because we never do,

it is living in the now is

the journey of worth.
