The Journey

The Journey

A Poem by Dave Brown

slip sliding


Slip sliding

Through the journey we take

Hopefully hiding

From the tears and heartache

Sometimes wondering                                                 

If life is real or a fake

And always looking

For that meaningful break


Is there time for reflection

As we race along

Can we stop for a moment

For a beer and a song

Or walk along a riverbank

Far away from the throng

Or are these selfish thoughts

Completely all wrong


One day perhaps

I’ll finally get to know

If this journey's going to take me

Up above or down below

A great poem on thoughtful introspection. The poet feels a bit of guilt for taking some me time and stopping for a few moments just for himself. Such is the rush of life. Whizzing past too fast. So can we stop for a moment, for a beer and a song? Most certainly sir. We owe it to ourselves. Loved it!
