Train to Nowhere

It seems to me that we’ve all gotten on the train to nowhere at some point in our lives.
Once you get on, there is no place to get off.
Feeling lost you think the train will get you somewhere.
Trying to find the easiest way back, you get on, in denile.
The train moves forward and you just sit, dying a little more with each passing hour.
Doing nothing, achieving nothing, feeling empty.
Out the window you see nothing but fog.
You realize that you are moving, but haven’t a clue as to what lies ahead.
So you sit, and die a bit more.
Soon time has no meaning, and you realize that you are truely alone.
The others that got on with you have disappeared into their own solitary exsistance.
Some will stay on the train, and pass their last breath with no one, nothing.
Others will realize and see the time wasted, time they will never get back.
Your time is now, time to get off.
There is only one way, this train never stops.
It continues into nothing, going nowhere.
It is more than happy to take you with it.
Your time is now, time to get off.
There is no right time to jump, it will take all of your courage and strength.
The landing will not be easy, and will definately leave a scar.
A reminder.
Getting back to your path will not be easy.
The hard road is filled with set backs…yet victories as well.
You will remember the train, and all that has been wasted by your choice to get on.
You can find your path.
You will never get on the train again…perhaps.
If your lesson is truely learned, not only will you never get back on the train.
You will do what you can so others will not chose the train to nowhere.
You will show them your scars.
Those that wish to see and hear you will be spared the nothingness.
And you will grow stronger, with purpose.
