I am in charge of this train wreck, referred to as my life.
You will find me, picking up the pieces thereof,
far too busy to look for any kind of love.
Re-assembling the ancient engine, after impacts born in strife.
If you look you will find me in the ruins thereof,
with no will to fight and devoid of spite.
Far too busy to look for any kind of love,
having felt life’s frustration and Destiny’s might!
I do not want to fight, and I feel no spite,
I only want to get back on my tracks!
I have felt life’s frustration and Destiny’s might,
I have seen train tracks all covered in cracks!
Only one thing I want, to get back on my tracks,
to once more be the driver of my life!
I have seen life’s tracks all covered in cracks
and I just want peace, no more silly strife!
Oh, to once more be the driver of my life!
Not to bother looking for love!
For peace, to not get involved in strife!
To be in charge of this train wreck, my life.
This is supposed to be a Pantoum, as described at d’Verse Poets Pub Form for all a while back. I haven’t tried my hand at one since and I’m not sure it works, but the form called to me and I had to answer.
It’s been almost a year since I wrote this, but when d’Verse Poets Pub had another Form For All with the Pantoum form I decided to be cheeky and add this. Also hoping to get back into writing, so grasping at the straws! *smile*
