Just Another Brush Stroke

Travelling along eternity’s path am I
Where boundless joy is forever on offer
The goal of goals ceaselessly beckons
Ever evolving, ever unattainable
Yet sleeplessly irresistible.

There was a time when I lived
Only to reach the Golden Shore
Paradise but a distant destination
Now I see that my goal surrounds me
And heaven is found in every step I take.

What a most wonderful play this life is
And an incredible miracle the human spirit
I never want to reach the end
The journey is my wonderland
Yet the end is all incentive
My heart a magnet towards the goal.

How contrary my reasoning is
Yet somehow I understand
In this masterpiece of God’s creation
Just another brush stroke
On the canvas of existence I am.

- Alesha.
