I wait in line
for the train,
heading south.
The cold windy city gone
a warm beach
with sand as soft as silk
and sunshine awaits.

I see

on the other side,

the blacks,
waiting to go north.
packing up their lives,
taking a huge risk,
looking for an opportunity,
a chance, a break, a job.
The gigantic risk
as big as the train itself,
might not payoff.
They board the train,
heading into the unknown
hoping, wishing, and praying
for the best.
As I board mine,
I know
they search for what I have
a house, a family, and a job.
