All friendship leads to happiness

March 12, 2019

Life is an impulsive, endless journey through time.

Accomplishment is a wonderful feeling, so sublime.

Faith is the vehicle I trust, to protect me on my way.

The Holy Spirit is the spark, igniting my engine bay.

Nature’s path is like a matrix, of never-ending roads.

Our senses or emotions control steering and the loads.

Tension creates the potholes and obstacles in our way.

Anger thrusts my vehicle, onto paths we dare not stray.

Love is a vehicle’s suspension, smoothing the bumpy ride.

Freedom has found my path again, no fear or need to hide.

Joy, is my reflection, I seek within the rear vision mirror,

a greater joy, I long to see, as some share love, then quiver.

Nature and environment have signposts we should not shun,

showing sense and real direction, adding hope for everyone.

My journey is not just about me, nor where I may have been,

a path to a promised land is via faith, hope and wellbeing.

This journey is a quest, to find life’s roadmap of readiness,

a map that simply says, ‘All friendship leads to happiness’.
