Silver Lines

Silver Lines

Riding the silver lines
The rails screech
One-tracked minds
What was hoped for
Just out of our reach
The days are not kind
Jostling boxcars over trestle
You made up your mind
Water under the bridge
So we no longer wrestle
The rails beneath us twist
Venture and run parallel
Time will carry us
Through stations
And only time will tell
