Train-Watching

I believe I’ve let life pass me by for far too long.

I’ve been a bystander, train-watching.

It carries on its pace, with or without me.

I don’t know where it will go,

but I know it won’t go back.

I remain stuck in place.

I’ve become more aware that there is an end-

a final stop.

And it’s coming fast.

So I better hop on now-

My future is on the tracks.
