Railroad

Mammoth structures of the modern age,

metal and wood, bolts and ties –

made to carry the world

along faster as steam and coal engines

churned out a new era.

End of the peaceful prairie,

but beginning of a new life.

Looking at that mighty metal beast –

so strong and sure,

carrying the weight of society without faltering.

Maybe it can carry me too,

take me some place where those memories

that become ghosts can’t follow –

where the sun fights back the darkness.
