Life is a Highway

Written by: Leonora Galinta

We are all distant travellers In this world full of strangers, Journeying through valleys and plains Nor taking path on tops or sides of mountains. Each one of us has his own backpack As we follow a trail without turning back, When our feet sore and feel like giving up We will look for a ride that offers us a kind hop. Our journey does continuously go As we anticipate a place where we don’t know, However, this would never be the right thing to do Be certain, take a breath as we go through. If we cross our fingers and focus on our goal We possibly reach the place, the desires of our soul, If checkpoint stops us in any time of the day Smile! Then, we’ll travel smoothly and freely on life’s highway.
