This train needs to break down
before it crashes-Break down,
in the middle of nowhere.
Somewhere imbetween these stops
that are all too familiar.

Leaving us to find our way through
places we passed on every journey-
Usually just a blur that is merely
a delay to the destination.

Places that may become our world
but for now, make us lost
(cause us loss).

The sun sets behind us-
once a sunset to flee,
then one that brought comfort
in its hue of sin.
It's last rays shed light that pushes us
to turn away to the east
and chase the sunrise.

It was short and I wish that I could read more in this writing. It was good.

On the Right Track?
Having worked a critical movement position for trains on a midwest railroad that has since been gobbled up by what we talled the great white shark of Railroads, (Burlington Northern Railroad LOL) I can assure you that nearly all train wrecks occur in one of two places, wither wayyyyyy out in the boondocks away from anything else in the planet, or at the very front doorstep of the local Railroad Depot.

I have myself witnessed 6 giant locomotive engines come off the tracks at 40 MPH and head straight for my nose, while I was standing frozen and watching it all from the local Depot Window. I could not move. The engines indeed did stop only about 4 inches away from destroying the entire Depot, along with my now. There was another train crew in the depot at the time, thay all hauled ass out the back door, but some of the laughed later about my just standing there and calmly watching the world end. ha ha
I knew then and there that God would indeed protect me through anything for the rest of my life in this garbage heap.
. Praise Jesus.
