FROM HERE TO THERE

For Carry On Tuesday
And Totally Optional Prompts


Give Me - Take You

Give me
Another chance...

When a journey
Begins badly
It rarely
Ends well

Such is life…

A journey…

Unusual…

Commencing
On arrival
Concluding
At departure

Origin
Destination
Shrouded in
Mystery

Arrival time
Departure time
Arbitrary

Accidents
And delays
Constant hazards

Some of us
Ambitious
Dynamic
Achievers

Some of us
Plod along
Wallow in
Ignorance

Most of us
Are aware
Destination
Becomes clear

Out of reach

Come with me
You will see

Lifetime
Not wasted
I’ll die happy
If I ever

Get the chance to
Take you

    I like these lines buddy. Life is a cycle, yes it is. It proliferates right at the moment when we think of putting a halt. wonder filled.
