Further down the tracks

Through my frail days

I found inner strength

remained focused on

further down the tracks.

Gave myself many a talkin’ to

wandered down curvy paths

that led to where I am now.

I quenched my thirst for life

ate plenty of dust

while learning who to trust.

A heart is a fragile piece

it questions motives, discreetly

as smiles come and go.

Further down the tracks

living awaits me

as I hum a song from years ago

a sweet one, slow.

May tenderness of others

hold your hand as you stroll

down the tracks of life.

burn baby burn
