What is life but a journey…

What is life but a journey
by suddenly surprised travelers,
whose entry into this sojourn
was involuntary.
We attempt to select our own path,
but forces overpower us, sending
our trek in unintended directions.
And somewhere along our route,
almost anybody can punch our ticket,
ending our journey.

Life is tenuous and once cut off,
nonexistence enshrouds us.
That is why hope for mercy
has a welcome place in so many hearts.
