Death A Destination

Birth is a beginning, and death a destination
But life is a journey. A going -- a growing
From stage to stage. From childhood to maturity. And youth to age.

From innocence to awareness, and ignorance to knowing;
From foolishness to discretion. And then perhaps, to wisdom.
From Weakness to strength. Or strength to weakness
And, often, back again.

From health to sickness. And back we pray, to health again.
From offence to forgiveness, From loneliness to love,
From joy to gratitude, From pain to compassion,
And grief to understanding --

From fear to faith. From defeat to defeat to defeat --
Until, looking backward or ahead, We see that victory lies
Not as some high place along the way, But in having made the journey, stage by stage.

A sacred pilgrimage.

Birth is a beginning. And death a destination.
But life is a journey, A sacred pilgrimage
Made stage by stage. To life everlasting.
