We shall all end up at the same terminal, my dear friend
I know how worrisome it is
Especially when you see some of our old friends
Who seems to have it all together, really quick and smooth.
And I know there are times you wish that that is you
Listen, in the voyage of life we are all passengers
Some take the front seat
Some can’t afford to sit, they stand
Some sit alone, carrying no baggage
Some sit where they just have to manage
Some come prepared with heavy extra luggage
Some hide in the trunk,they can’t afford to pay.
Some take the early departures
Some of us had our flights delayed and shifted several times
The good thing is, we are all heading for the same harbor.
You see, delay is not denial.
Time and chance happen to all men.
I’m not trying to excuse failure.
You are not even a failure, unless you stop trying.
You need to understand that the quality of a man’s life cannot be measured by the abundance of his possessions.
The most important things in life are not things.
The Journey of life is not always based on how far.
Please my friend, wherever life has conducted your seat.
Make sure you enjoy and appreciate every single moment of it.
Do not sleep off during your journey, stay awake, and do not be terrified by the bumps and thrums of life.
Your destination is not affected by the class of your flight.
It’s not where you seat that matters, but where you stand in the end of your journey.
Refuse to allow the things you don’t have to rob you of the things that are freely yours.
And when it’s time to alight, you should, with highlighted smile, step down. Not minding whether or not you have a big luggage, because you’ve realized that the things that count in life, cannot be counted. And the real essence of life is a life that never ends.
