Cut Short

When smooth and comfortable
the road to a goal
is
the most enjoyable part
of the journey.

When the road to a goal
is rocky and rough
you enjoy it
all the more
when you’re finally there.

On the road
is
where adventure happens
where unexpected opportunities
present themselves.

Why then
are we trying so hard
to cut our roads short
to turn our existence
into a string of destinations.

We’re taking shortcuts
skipping past
what would have been
our lives.
