The Journey Simply Is...

To make things easier we classified life-
infancy, childhood, adolescence, middle age and old age.
But does life follow the same order?
Does one stage follow another?
They are all in a maze.
All these stages are in me right now.
I am the child, the rebel, the complacent soul,
the caretaker and the tired one.

Life has been a journey.
Not a linear journey.
It moves in the shape of 8.
No escape from the binding rules.
No relief from the 'so-called-stages'.
No running away from life.
No new places to go,
just adherence to the shape of 8.
Move in circles. another circle. and another..

The journey continues.
The journey simply is and was and will be.
