The train rumbles and rocks as they do.
Not so many any more here
But enough for some of us who still like the
Erratic rhythm and relaxation
Time to think, time to write
Time to thank God for this
Struggle that consumes some of us
Not because it is easy or always fun
Though it is often fun
But because this struggle allows us
To link souls with one another
And that soul linkage,
The joining of our humanity
Allows us to love, really love and
To do justice and love righteousness.
