"You have enemies? Good, that means you stood up for something." -Eminem

I sit and watch
As people buzz like bees
Around me. Completely

Of the journey; only concerned
With the destination.
Ignorant that

The Journey
Is starring them in the face.
My wish for the world is that
We realize that getting there

Is More Important,
Than the place
We are all rushing to reach.
We look around, and discern more

The noticeable,
Because without the journey,
What is the point of

The Destination?
