De-railing Success


Run-away train run-away train.
Head feels like its spinning from thoughts racing through my brain.
Run-away train why are you so shy?
Run-away train things will get better look into the sky.
So when you do this you may feel free.
Released from the tracks that at one point it was the only way you could see.
So run runaway train run for your life.
Tearing through troubles like a razor blade or a knife.
Run for freedom, run and don’t stop.
Run like your ancestors & arise to the top.
Sleep is the cousin of death so no time for rest.
Working all day only to go home to a nest.
Some sticks pilled on the ground that you call home.
Run-away run away, don’t go off and roam.
Have set destinations for goals you want.
And a plan that many may wish will fail you but it won’t.
Run away my friend.
Get lost in the wind.
Don’t return home, don’t stay here and roam.
Set forth and do something in life.
Go through troubles straight ahead like a knife.
Run-away.
Run away.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
