I was reviewing a blog on the game “No Man’s Sky”. The tag line “destination is not the goal” was used several times. This inspired me to write the poem “Voyage”.


Voyage

Welcome to the voyage
the path between the stars
destination is not the goal
when life is all you have.

Time was our companion
the constant at our side
when change took the others
the reaper in disguise.

Weep not for the past
the dust takes its due
though wisdom may be found
through lessons etched in sand.

Hold tight to the hands
offered when you grasp
phantoms ask for nothing less
than what you quest from them.

You’ll find it in your sights
in the last place you look
on the voyage to the stars
where life must find its own.
