Take a seat for now and pause
For this journey will take long.
Take heed of the boos and applause
In life's age-old dance and song.
Refreshments are at the side
To calm you amidst the cold and heat.
If you feel tired, let it slide,
And stay comfy in your seat.
Look back at the road you've taken
And the places you've seen far and wide,
Whether you feel proud or mistaken
Breathe in and out, don't shrink or hide,
For every trip, you need to stop
And look ahead to where you'll go,
Brace yourself before you walk up
And meet the winds that life will throw.
Your journey, be it near or far
Will soon bear fruit and fulfill you,
Your steps will be guided by the North Star
If what you seek is clear and true.
But for now, just take a seat,
Stay a while, relax and sigh.
This repose will be life's treat
Before you move along and fly .
