The Quest, Not the Conquest

"The journey, not the destination" --
 That is what they told her;
 But was going anywhere
 Without a "where" to go?

 But now, upon another hill
 With many leagues behind her,
 She's realized the "where's" of life
 Are never all we know

 The only way to reach the truth
 Is sideways, and with stealth --
 And it's the effort makes the journey,
 The crux of what she's learned about

 Herself
