Wagons of Time Still Turning, A Poem


There was a time

When our hearts

Ached to stretch

Across these valleys

To cross the earthen walkways

That span the horizon

We sought a future

That did not belong to us

A promise never given

Never kept

Yet still, we rode on

The wagons of time

Still turning

Through fields of golden grass

Crickets chirping

And we wondered,

When would we get there?

When would we know?

We would sigh

Move our rucksack

Exchanging one shoulder

For another

And carry on

Laying the path

Seeking the gold

And finding ourselves

Lost in longing.

Now, fences divide the lands

And barely does man

Have time to cross the span

To contemplate the journey

Or to find the dream.
