A Journey Unknown - Poem by j l price

Toss a bottle into a stream
just where does it go?
The moving water takes
it in the direction of the current.
Along its way it may contact
other visitors in the form of
branches, debris or even other
fellow cans or bottles.

Where will its journey end? Will it
be scooped out of the stream and
placed with other trash where it
should rightfully be? Will it proceed
onward and then become merged
into a larger body of water? How many
miles will complete its journey? Just
How long will it be in the water?

How many other bottles or cans will
make this same journey? As insignificant
As the bottle may seem, it can be compared
with our own life’s journeys as we grow.
We must not allow ourselves to become that
bottle or can that is tossed aside with an un
known journey.

Make sure you chose your friends wisely and
that they have your best interest at hand.
Try to place yourself in the best surroundings
where you have growth. Not just a stream that
is flowing in one direction. You want to be able
to make your own choices and control your own
destiny so yours does not end like that thrown
away bottle with a journey unknown.

    Very well written with so much truth in it. A lot of people are in a journey unknown, destination unknown too, no direction and no plans, just going with the flow. wish they will see this, read and mend their ways. (Report) Reply
