make it count...


simply dressed man
 with an honest smile, 

on the road, for a journey

called lifetime...


a long-haul, on the road...

every highway with that honest smile,

every mountain with the same drive...
writing his journal, riding his truck...

child in me asked him, "why do we seek to travel far and wide, 

when every breath is a journey, we take towards the destination?"


very pragmatically, he answered "some stay some vanish...
we fight, we feign, we contemplate 
but, we keep breathing unaware of 
being wiped away, one figment at a time...
day in day out, its a journey,
make that count"



shiny quizzical eyes

of a familiar stranger
of a traveller, a story teller
learning lessons from the roads, 
rivers and air 

to keep walking, keep moving and
 keep flowing, and when the end comes, 
be rest assured that you

made it count!
