A Journal in Time

Myriad Writings from the Desk of Isyldar

Archives: January 2014


A thousand people must have written something similar over the ages, or thought these same thoughts. Still, I penned something tonight that I would like to share. Here it is:

No easy path to follow,
never a smooth road to walk.
Never a hill that needn’t be climbed,
never a mountain that one need not ascend.

Always a field that must be sewn,
never a crop that needn’t be harvested.

To live is to work at life each and every single day.
Do not let life’s toils keep you discouraged.

Enjoy the trip, the journey, the trek.
It is you who chooses the landscape to traverse,
and it is you who must reach journey’s end.
