This symbolizes my struggle with life. I personally find a lot of meaning in the poem but like any poem I write, I don't expect soemone else to see in it what I see. I hope you enjoy it though, and find some meaning for your own life. Personalize it for yourself.

Leaves flow from the trees

Autumn greets the Sun

Winter’s around the bend of life

Life goes on, one step at a time

To and fro

Opening every door

Leaving me wondering when it’ll slow

To let me back on the train

Or am I to sit and watch…carefully

Life and time, go on by?


Stand with me, please

Sandy beaches overlooking green water’s deepness

Blue skies surrounding high mountain peaks

These I walk in between

The world is my park, my playground

I am its prisoner and slave

We love each other dearly

And love to hate

We stand together

But I need you to stand with me in its place


For life stands to stay away


Like the leaf leaves the tree behind

I travel off the path of mine

The one picked out to live by nature’s course

To run my own

Like an Indian summer in the dead of a January night

I will slow the train myself

And get it right

Between the glories of the World tonight
