The Journey IS the Destination 

Up and down the stairs
colored by the steps to
grow..such becomes the
journey to go where life
is of the lessons needed
to move on

Wherein lies the destination
as our shadow becomes the
faith behind our back bringing
pieces of dreams step by step
into our reality world

Climbing to advance, stopping
for mounting decisions..emotions
to become strong and unyielding
at the many junctions becoming
less cumbersome one by one

A journey where we were not
meant to stay rejoice following
destination paths for they will
be measured by deeds along
the way by their portrayal
for a world without end

(c) The Journey IS the Destination

Three points of this poem, Vivian, swell out from this wonderful writing. First: "as the shadow becomes the/ faith behind our back..." how unique I find this correlary; and I immediately thought of reversing the shadow to be in front of us and we step into our destiny and faith. Second: "....junctions becoming/less cumbersome one by one" oh, what truth is that. With age comes wisdom, but as you say here, with experience so does the wisdom arrive. Third: "A journey where we were not/meant to stay..." I like that. I like this whole creation. ~~ Diana

All journeys are a process of understanding our-self

Well done

A lot to ponder, but I would suffice to say that it is the process, the journey
through life that makes us who we are, and not where we end up.

You have maintained that climbing up the staircase of life imagery right throughout the piece without it seeming too contrived. some really good phrases too. I particularly like your second verse, it really captures your theme perfectly.

"...A journey where we were not meant to stay..."
is the most truthful way of seeing it, the one
certainty. As Christine says, such a wise poem;
fine delivery, Vivian

You write of wisdom and knowledge with your choice of words describing the travel through ones life. The photo speaks a thousand words of which you have chosen many pithy ones to demonstrate the journey.

The start of this poem made me think of the title of a book I read, must be fifty years ago, with the name of "Up the Down Staircase."

Back to your poem. You, of course, are so correct in saying that . . . "they will / be measured by deeds along / the way by their portrayal / for a world without end"

Our journey is the destination. That is profound, Vivian.
