The in between...

The struggle,
The pain
The torment
The love
The hatred
The fame
The famine
The silly squabbles
The ecstatic moments
The moments of peace
The moments of reflection
The times we’ve had enough
But..
Not enough.
The futile wars and insurrections
The wealth the poverty
The path we’ve taken
All wrapped up in this thing called life
The ongoing cycle
Ever replenished..
Enter the new
On the indomitable conveyor belt
How far upon it will they get...
Some disembark early
As it travels on it’s way
Some are pushed off
Amid dismay
The ‘lucky’ ones make it to
The end of the journey
Battled their way
Some have left their mark
Others just slip quietly away
Life, it’s a terminal illness
Once you’re here
Your ticket says...
Only one way.
