Sometimes something unexpected comes roaring down at you and catches you totally unawares.
Tomorrow is not given to anyone.
Whether for good or ill it comes,
Rushing like an express train.
Don’t get caught on the tracks:
Something seemingly insignificant,
Something seemingly unimportant,
Something seemingly innocent,
Can roar down the tracks at you,
Run you down and crush you.
Better you shouldn't walk there,
But if you decide to do so,
First you should look behind you
To see if any trains are coming.

A thought provoking poem, Chip. There is always something to block our path but in the end if we are persistent we'll find our way. Excellent work!

everything you can imagine is out there, it's a matter of luck and maybe a little of your sense of survival. Yep. That was a good one by Prine.

|So true. This poem reminded of John Prine's song= Bruised Orange (Chaim of Sorrow) Worth a listen to if you.ve neber heard it.
