I Am The Train

Like life, like a knife
Like air, like water,
Like snow, Like fire, like time,
I am not good neither bad,
I am just what I am.
I could be loved or hated,
Welcomed or fought,
It’s all ok with me,
It’s all the same.

It can go in any direction you desire,
You are new today, you are new every hour.

He watched it turn to dust with an aching heart.

Her mind was cluttered with muddled thoughts.
A gradual qualm had taken over her,
Does the end always justify the means?
She visioned it happening differently,
And what if the life she wanted
Is not really the life that is good for her?

There Is Hope

It is messy, too messy a fight

The process of getting from wrong to right

The ruination of what is, for the inception of something better

And even then it is a game of trial and error
