midlife junction... they are...
are useful metphors
as you’ve seen no doubt..
Metaphors for life...and all that
that journey..that journey..
that unending mysterious journey
And so I found myself..
On just such a metaphor
comfortable as I could afford
Plush content..first class..
Waiting for the words at last..
The the wind...
In my hair..
When suddenly I discern..
just around the turn..
A slowly approaching train..
I note with disdain..
How did it get here..?
I wonder as aloud..
As is allowed
In a poem..
But the humor falls flat.
The closer it gets..
Decrepid..and unnerving..
I peer through my scope..
And turn white as a ghost..
.........disturbing vision
A white haired..version..
Of me..
ME peering back..
Back..with a sad longing...
choking... lungs
As the trains..
and prepare
to meet switch
at...Midlife Junction..

time goes very fast, it is indeed scary. But at least we can still make the most of now

I think theres a moment in everyones life...when we see the other train coming..
I guess that would be what we call mid life crisis..

youre too young for a midlife crisis
youre one of the lucky ones who see the train coming still in time to switch to a different track
you got a glimpse of what could be, but you get to decide what will be..
