Journey of life

Journey of life

By: Rihab Ch.

An engineer who is going to change the world and make it a better place.

A Brilliant writer and an amazing artist.

And not less than a great warrior.


It was a big road; I walked there for days,

Weeks, months, I walked there since always,

Lot of turns, crossroads, a weird way,

Just like the journey of life

Of course I wasn’t alone; I wanted to know others,

There were lots of people and none walked in the same way,

So I continued walking straight

But doubt came, anyway,

I didn’t knew what I was doing here,

Even less where to go,

But, in that road, with time,

I had lots of meetings,

Great things happened to me,

I really have to tell you,

Those characters I met are not really human,

You can talk to, but never touch them

The first I met on my journey was innocence

A very gentle nice being, but who didn’t really have an experience, we walked together for a while,

But soon I met other elements, and innocence went away,

A moment on my way I met sports, a physical guy with lots of muscles with whom you become strong, For technical reasons I had to go, but eventually, it’s better like this, cause sport make aches,

Then I me poetry with her pretentious air, she claimed that with words, we can cross the world, I said, we’ve already met, and frankly you don’t worth it, we talked about you at school, And you looked really stupid,

But poetry insisted, caught me with other ways, so I knew that she was cool and we can exceed its limits, I said can we stay together, I can’t live without you, she said don’t worry, the world belongs to dreamers,

Then I met distress but, she has plenty of confidence, and was full of tension, we talked quickly then I pushed her away,

But you know what; misery is not a conversation…

A moment in my way, I met love, I said great to see you I’ve always wanted to talk to you, in the absolute, you’re a good idea but in reality you’re not, you never stay, you need to work on your formula, he said listen kid, since forever I’ve worked this way, I always want to stay, but humans make no effort, and I’m not a magician anyway, we stopped talking for a while , so I realized love was great, despite his arrogance ,

He said that he have a lot of meetings, he advised me to always believe, then he turned and went away,

I was so glad to meet him, it’s a fact, and I do feel that someday we’ll meet again,

Later on my path I met tenderness, what remains of love after the barriers that time draws, then, I met nostalgia, the bride of memories that we candle lit ,

I met faith who light up my way, and still until this day guiding through and helping me up

Soon enough on my journey I met friendship, and to this day she still walk with me side by side, and after all that friendship will always be my best friend,

I met the future but it was very mysterious, with a deformed voice and a mask over his eyes, there was no way to know him better, he left me no lead,

I don’t know what he looks like, but at least I know that he exist

I met few pains, I met lot of joy, sometime it’s a matter of luck, often a matter of choice, it’s doesn’t surprise so far, but every day, I keep on learning the secrets of my way

It was a big road; I walked there for days,

Weeks, months, I walked there since always,

Lot of turns, crossroads, a weird way, just like the journey of life

So the most important lessons are:

first: never cry on the past, it doesn’t worth it, and you should live in the present that would be better, learn from your own experiences, but try not to make the same mistake twice, just like I did,

second: you can change when you need to, but try to do it for the best, Allah won’t change people unless they decide to, that gives everyone a chance to repair their lives, believe in yourself, and do it, cause none would believe in you if you stay that way.

Third: life is a beautiful experience, but not to waste it, hang on to the ones you love most, stay with them, and love them with all you’ve got. Follow your heart, that’s a good way to start so you won’t regret it,

fourth: keep your head up no matter what, you might lost a fight, but not the battle, give yourself the chance that none is giving you, prove that you’re not the coward they think you are, let them see how stung you are, if you don’t believe in yourself, none will

fifth: smile, even when everything goes wrong, a smile would give the strength to carry on and keep on living, a smile is the happiness generator, so that must be it: the key of happiness’s door
