Life is about the living,
not about the end result.
It is about the journey,
not about the destination.
It is about the hunger,
not about the satisfaction.
It is about the love,
not about the materialism.
Forgive us for our sins,
for we know not what we do.
As we strive for perfection,
we are destroyed by our flaws.
Forgive us for our trespass,
for we overstep our boundaries.
As we search for streets of gold,
we burn our bridges to compassion.
Open hearts lead to open minds,
that shall close our personal Hell.
Paths less traveled now need company,
so we can grow to the stars and beyond.
Infinite wisdom shall overcome,
prejudice and bashing of differences.
We are the last frontier of us,
we are the survivors of the universe. . .
Timothy Michael DiVito c1996
