I Beg to Differ – Poetry Prompt 45

I’ve often heard
Said so much
That it’s not the ending
But the journey loved so much.
 
I’d like to disagree
A little bit
Because to me
It also matters in the end
Where you would like to see.
 
The journey is important
I won’t forget that,
But where you want
To end up
Is also as important
As that.
 
The climbing up the mountain
Matters in great import
If where you want
To end up
Is up upon the peak.
 
So remember while you’re climbing
That the journey there is good,
Keep in mind also
That where you end up is too.

And because I’ve heard that the journey is the most important part. While it is important what you use as a means to an end, the end you’re moving towards is just as important.
