My Train of Thoughts

Updated on November 27, 2018

Come and take a ride with me, upon Life's railroad track,

Words that I'll so convey and expressed in my own way.

Every boxcar full of sights, my train of thoughts reveals,

Words of greatest expression used and for your display.

Sounds heard in the night, each one described just right,

Their clickety-clack on that track, allows you to be in sight.

That smell of smoke in the air does faintly scent our ride,

But on this trip, we shall endure, as cleaner words provide.

The rumbling sounds we hear and feel as if we're there,

The metal on metal blends, at last, that we all may bear.

Sleep soon comes as if hypnotic, in each traveler's mind,

As we all move along the way, amid each twist and grind.

The train lets out a shrill refrain, as its notice to the night,

Huffs and puffs up every new hill, strains with all its might.

The whistling locomotive's calls echo throughout the dark,

Leaves a resounding sharpness in the black, its own mark.

Soon our sleepytime is interrupted by a local rooster's call,

We have stopped on our route as if a stallion put in its stall.

The first rays of morning's sun now filter through the scene,

Creates real beauty to the place, our minds. pure and clean.

A refreshing drink from an old fruit jar wakes us each at last,

As the alert engineer gives a whistle, the last standard is cast.

Our train regains its momentum, so continues, no longer slow,

It's now we begin to wonder, just how many miles there's to go.

Soon comes mid-morning's relief, no sounds, at least, of a train,

We've now reached our own destination, in our minds, all retain.

Each dip, the bumps we've felt along our journey, we'll remember,

As fondest memories are held in never-ending time, ours to gain.

Yes, our life's journey, to be so much like that old locomotive's trip,

We each must learn to endure to make our effort, part of the script.

Full of twists, turns, bumps and grinds, experienced way back then,

All arriving at the end much stronger my friend, than as we did begin.
