Train

I am coming, move away
I run majestically
Slow to start, I speed along
where the tracks take me

Some lead me
Some hop on me
Some follow me
Some watch me along
by the sidelines

I am cheered by some
Some throw stones at me
I change tracks as I like
I can fall in danger
I do not fear

Sometimes I reverse
Then move ahead
My time is over it seems
I finally stop

Oh! thought I was the train
I was only a driver
Its time to pave the way
for another to take over.

Hi Suresh.I like this.And yes I fell into the trap you cleverly laid, with your rhythm and the image you conjured up with your words.It was a simple topic that you made fun and a pleasure to read.Thank you. Luv June(sylvia)
