The Train

The Train

A Poem by Melinda McQueen



The Train

 

The train moved along the tracks,

Daring not to look back.

At first, slow and steady,

Then it picked up speed.

 

For it was leaving behind

All the dirt and grind

That it had picked up through the miles,

Along with its every wile.

 

Carrying precious cargo,

Onward it goes.

Having no room for Hatred, Self-Doubt,

Hopelessness and Jealousy to crowd.

 

No, it all was removed at the last stop,

Not one was left, no, not a drop.

It was removed to make room

For Love, Hope and Truth.

 

Yes, precious cargo indeed

Filled the train completely.

The further it progressed down the tracks,

Faith and Peace had no lack.

 

When it arrived at its destination,

Its final station...

The horn blew once more from the Conductor’s Seat,

For the train had been driven by Mercy.

A amazing poem dear Melinda.
"When it arrived at its destination,
Its final station...
The horn blew once more from the Conductor’s Seat,
For the train had been driven by Mercy."
I liked the above lines a lot. We need Mercy my friend. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

As our Life Trains move along their precarious tracks the needless cargo is offloaded and the important cargo (such as Love and Faith) fills up the cargo bays; the leadership of the Conductor steers us toward our vital Destination as we ride in Peace. Very nicely written piece, Melinda. take care...dan

Yes it did. :) Thank you so much for reading.
The idea of mercy and all it entails
Leaving all negativity behind
and searching for the novelty of days to come

like a train
it rushes through making the loudest noise
Saying Change has come along

I must say i enjoyed reading this particular piece
