The sum of all our fears,

Judgment of others is not mandatory

When we thirst for knowledge,
Let knowledge quench the thirst




The Rails
I stop at times just to listen as life goes by,
I feel the low turning of the train wheels.
Hear the deep horn to clear the way ahead,
As it slowly moves along that empty rail.

Winding along rivers as well as the coast,
Miles of train cars being pushed and pulled.
Taking car after carload to a destination,
To a final stop a long, long way from here.

Laying in my bed late into the cool evening,
I listen and wait for the low rumble of freight.
Like in many of my dreams the train goes by,
Taking me with it riding to that final stop.

The motion of moving slowly over the tracks,
Rocking as we pass the connection of the rail.
The rhythm makes for a soothing combination,
Allowing the body and mind to fall & drift off.

On and on all those miles slip slowly on by,
A train in motion, rolling wheels and the rail.
I can not imagine on a better way of traveling,
Over the rails the side to side sway of a train.



There is an optional use for everything
