Rails to Better

The train has left the station
I seem to have missed its boarding
Runaway life trundles further from reach
Coals added and the fire stoked
Clouds of smoke blurring my view
Tears sprung from overwhelm
Clickety-clack amplified
In a chaotic, unfocused mind
The wow of this journey fading
As I feel I’ve been absent for too much
I’m wishing this locomotive slow down
That I can catch up and climb on
I’m ready for the ride of my life
I’ll go where my tracks take me
And forge new ones ahead
When I quiet the noise in my head
When I breathe the essence of life
Into the lungs of my soul
And surrender the fight to make it
What they want, what I want
And live it on the rails
Where the Universe takes me
To better than I could have known
