The Journey of Life

This life is like a journey
With stops along the way
Some leave us before we reach our stop
We leave some on their way

You get on the train of life
Because you don’t have a choice
You get off on your stop
Because you don’t have a choice

“What can I do then” he asks
“I feel like I’m trapped”
So he decides to ignore the reality and has fun
Until his body is wrapped

Every stop seems like the final one
I’ve never seen them come back
Some leave while they’re happy
Some leave while they’re sad

He thinks this train came by itself
That there’s no intelligent design
That he can be on this journey and take what he wants
He defines for himself reward for a crime

It doesn’t make sense to him
“How could there be a life after ours?
You know I’ve even been to the edges of this train
I’ve even explored the Moon and Mars”

He thinks his rebellion makes him strong

It makes him feel proud

He writes lengthy equations of math

He gathers a huge crowd

Then one day he too is forced to leave
But they’re always worried before they go
It makes me wonder if this is all there is to life

Or is there something more?
