journey not destination

this road leads us to no secret places
the map shows clear just where we have to go
we do not move with haste beneath the glow
nor are our feet ready for the races
at times we will be led to shadowed spaces
and learn things that are never good to know
others will pass us since feet move too slow
but will miss the less important graces
the lethargy that serves to hold you back
may in the end allow you to see more
than those who rush right on to their far goal
you have good reason to see all the track
to note with pleasure each welcoming door
and reach your destination sane and whole
