As the Train Passes

Drowning, yet breathing… Dark and cold… Inside warm…

Find the surface only to find its on fire…

The tree grows in the right direction… Always seeking light… Feeding on only what is required…

Never more, sometimes less… Still standing… Green and glowing…

Look for what’s required, but we’ll never find it… even though its right there…

Escaping every moment of every minute…

Life spent at the railroad crossing, waiting to begin, to cross, to find what’s on the other side…

A means to an end is all… Each car a passing day… faster and faster…

The gates come up… nothing but the same road you’ve been traveling… more road… more bumps… dead end…

Find an alternate route… Jump the tracks, race the train and catch a car… stay with that car for a while… explore it… move on only when you can…

The train will never stop… and neither should you…

Each car… a new experience… So cold and some warm… Some bright and some dark…

But then again… I’m stuck in the traffic… no escape… cars in front and cars in back…

Open the door, get out… fresh air… walk… run….

Catch the car… Smile…

Live…. not exist….
