A Million Miles To Nowhere



Walking a million miles to nowhere


Pondering the significance of it all


Life is not written on the palms of my hands


But on my shoulders


Weighing in what has been and is going to be


Walking a million miles to nowhere


I see the past


The story of me


The places where I crumbled when I fell


And the places where I learned how to rise


Walking a million miles to nowhere


I look to the future


But the visions of behind


Blur the forward motion of discovery


Stopping for breath


I thirst for the moment


I lie and wait until it comes

Finding the beauty of today


even if ugliness taints it
balancing the fine line of fate and will


I walk without apology


Writing a new chapter
taking my first steps


in a new place


Awakening to the brilliance of now

After a million miles, it's not 'nowhere' that you end up. It's the sum of the experiences of the journey that you end with =0)

Thank you..I had this epiphany on the treadmill...walking..to nowhere..then I looked up and saw the news on the tv's..it so bothered me the ugliness of the world..and in my own world... I could not digest all my thoughts till now, they were a jumbled blur..and the blur made this......
