Tracks Aren’t Always Parallel

I love the visualization and the flow of this piece. Michael has a way with words that makes you feel like you are often on the same ride, or in this case, in the same line. Please comment on original post and visit Michael. He is a true writing machine of wonder.

The Poetry Channel

I oftentimes find myself out of queue
in this carnival procession of souls,
heading toward self actualization.
Conductors affirm this is the right track.
It seems as though I have lost my ticket,
and keep rejoining the end of the line.
I am unsure of my destination,
doubtful there is purpose to this journey.
I fumble for my itinerary,
and there, written plainly, is but one word.
I compare with those ahead and behind.
We can’t all be headed there, we’re all different,
besides they all seem so sure of themselves.
When a kindly voice entered my spirit,
assured me that I was as gifted as they.
“When you get to that Life, just do your best.”
So here I am trying to find my way.
