Riding the Train

You are on an everlasting ride 

towards the final destination

 

A new life approaches 

as you reach the station

 

The unexpected bumps in the road 

may shorten your ride

 

But the other passengers 

continue to wait by your side

 

As the end of the path 

slowly creeps near

 

Your visions and aspirations 

join together to become clear

 

You reflect on your travels 

that have led you thus far

 

And the memories and dreams 

that have made you who you are

 

Advanced travelers 

begin to slowly disappear

 

Making room for the new riders 

who spread laughter and cheer

 

The current passengers express 

themselves through their personality

 

As they influence your visions 

and unique mentality

 

The road loudly makes a “screech” 

as the journey comes to an end

 

And you give thanks to the new life 

you prepare to spend

 

You gather your things 

and give a final goodbye

 

As you hop off the road 

and into the sky
