You can’t hurry the journey

by jimowensjr

You can’t hurry the journey,

To finding all that’s true.

You can’t hurry the journey,

On the path toward being you;

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

By chasing after peace.

You can’t hurry the journey

Let your mind be at ease;

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

Just settle down, be still.

You can’t hurry the journey

By force of all your will;

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

Just be where you are;

You can’t hurry the journey.

My friend, you’ve come so far.

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

Enjoy the bouncing ride;

You can’t hurry the journey,

By fighting against the tide.

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

I know this much is true.

You can’t hurry the journey,

There’s so little you can do.

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

Please listen to what I say.

You can’t hurry the journey,

There’s peace along the way.

 

You can’t hurry the journey,

To yourself always be kind.

You can’t hurry the journey,

All the wisdom you will find.
