On the train

Today was a very unique day
I sat down on the train
With my eyes I saw all the tired people
ruhsing to a destination unknown
Pacing as if time was going to end
I saw their tired forlon faces
twisted with agony and lost patience
I wanted to search deeper into their hearts
To find what was causing them this pain
Clearly life was not this painful
As I closed my eyes
I envisioned myself like this in the upcoming years
With the same expression
Suddenly, sweat started running down my forehead
My heart was torn into fragmented pieces
This idea of me living life as if there was nothing to live for
Brought me great grief
On that train
I found out that we live life like a train
On a schdeule rushing to reach its
place
Life should not be liven as if torture
Life ought to be free as our very souls
Yes, you want to reach that destination
But remember,
Life is only for a while
So it is up to you to make it all the WORTH-while
