A Poem by CRZ
"

written on a NYC train

"
The trains are very interesting. Everybody who enters the moving metal box brings their own stories and you can read a few pages by looking into their eyes. Each ride to work, meeting up with their friend or to home is a different type of pace. If you sleep on the train, your physical frame experiences how your mind dreams when the snoring commences; all over the place.
As a kid, the colorful lights hugging the trains illuminating the trains through them dark tunnels used to have me in awe. I didn't need an amusement park to be entertained. 
Ever took the train at 3 in the morning? 
You can impregnate your girl and witness the child's 3rd birthday before you can get to the 4th stop towards home.
If we would realize how deep we're inside mother earth
How about the less fortunate who enter the depths of mother nature asking for what man has made out of mother nature.That's like hugging your mother asking her where is mommy.
The train consists of strangers who optically unite to condemn someone that society would announce as weird or dumb. Let's not forget the angle our eyes take when the train commences to transport which is straight down to the phones. And a type of phone you have gives you a false sense of merit. It's considered a threat if eyes are laid on you instead on their phones or the phloor. 
Your intention when talking to new people is not to advance yourself but the things you can learn by talking to others in the train is quite surprising. If everybody's stories mesh on the daily it will culminate to an advanced culture. There will be more understanding amongst others and the discovery of the lies people firmly believe and fight for. It teaches kids instead of looking at people, keeping quiet and eventually start to judge and compare from within they will ask questions and embrace the many differences we share. 

I guess I'm on a enlightenment tangent but this is my train of thought. 
The thing about love and learning is that there is no last stop.

I agree CRZ - we've reached a place (in the Western world only, I suspect) where we fear anyone who looks at us or tries to engage with us. How did we get here? If 360 Westernised people were in an elevator they would all be looking in a different direction!
Fine writing CRZ - much as I remembered you for...

I really liked the way that you made the train into a completely different world. A train was turned not only into a way of transport, but a way people connect, and judge, and make new friends, and live their lives. It was a new way of thinking of a way of travel that we don't think of a whole lot, and like others have said, the "you can impregnate your girl and witness the child's 3rd birthday before you can get to the 4th stop" line had me chuckling.....alright, fine, I was full on laughing and making people question my sanity, but it was funny nonetheless. I really want to read more of your writing. Very, very good, and it makes you really think about things.

this is a beautiful write but this line right here made me chuckle: Ever took the train at 3 in the morning?
You can impregnate your girl and witness the child's 3rd birthday before you can get to the 4th stop towards home.

There is so much depth in your write. Very free verse and open, like a mind should be. Thanks for sharing your inner thoughts. It would also be cool to make it into a sonnet.I was thinking that when I was reading.
