Until The Journey Ends – ADEKANBI MICHAEL

until-the-journey-ends
Taking the long journey to the middle of nowhere
treading the path of the known to the unknown
The journey started at birth
and will definitely end with death
The journey is hidden among the vast forest of the soul
the most distant journey course that comes nearest to us
and one has to wander through all the outer world to reach the innermost end
through the long afternoon and creeks at dusk
Hikes to the mountain are things of the past
even a stroll down the road has it terrors
the last becoming first and first, last
The length of the journey we can’t measure
Along the road of this journey is life
we experience happiness, joy, pain and strive
days filled with smiles as when a child is born
hours filled with tears as when we feel our hearts has been torn
A journey with two paths
the paths keep winding up and down
not all will end well
that is a real fact
Grab whatever you can while you can
just assume something better might turn up by and by
Take a good look at God’s work;
He simplified and reduced creation’s curves and angles into a plain straight line
A distinctive journey we must take
back roads, cross roads and decisions we must make
our hope for the future, backed by faith that is strong and unending
that is the word of our victory we can proudly sing
We work to feed our appetite
meanwhile our souls go hungry
flesh booming
soul dying
So much unsaid
chapters of book unread
heaven above; our town and song,
the abode for those in faith.
Someday, we’ll shed this mortal flesh,
and fly to our heaven home
leaving behind this old world
and in sin no more will we roam
A place where the world is as warm as bunches of iceberg
where smiles are like treasury of golds
where the whites are whiter
and green, greener
The end of the journey is now in sight
and from the darkness we can now see light
let’s remain loyal to our God
until the journey ends!
