If We Begin This Journey...


An ode to a beautiful new start.

If We Begin This Journey...


If we begin this journey,
On the road to destination x
And commit to ourselves to commit
Aching to give our best


If we begin this journey,
Saying we'll stand the test
And despite the tides and turnings
Stay on course nonetheless


If we begin this journey,
With our fears and toils and tears
Who knows where we'll be turning
We'll see what happens next


If we begin this journey,
Knowing it's up or out
And like champions, we come in
With no inkling of doubt


If we begin this journey,
And watch the ranks grow thin
And see responsibilities a-piling
Yet surmount them for the win,


Then we'll look upon this journey,
And with a smile so broad
We'll take stock of wins and losses
And move on to journeys yet untrod

  1. We have begun this journey,
    Lets see where the road leads,
    Hopefully to the place,
    Where joy and fulfillment meet.
