The Railroad

Picture Taken by: Edoardo Loru

If you sat there

And waited long,

Eventually the fear

Would come ripping along.

The gravel at your feet

Reminds you too dearly

Of the pavement on a street

Where were beat strenuously.

The train arrives at four

Blazing down the track.

When the conductor looks out the door:

Your vision will soon run black.

In the middle of the railroad:

The bars trap you, the gravel haunts you,

Your life taunts you.  The good isn’t bad.

But the bad isn’t good, you know it’s true.

The railroad will take your life because

You are coal in the fire – burning yourself out.
