Writing on a Train of Thought

Sabrina Helck


As I begin to write I begin to think about where this will take me,

Where I might travel to with my writing.

I enter a train station filled with many different routes,

Having to figure out which train route I must go on.

I may not find the right train at first, but eventually I will.

I will just have to explore the different options.

Finally I find the right train that brings me to the place I want to be,

But the train ride isn’t always comfortable;

It can be bumpy and winding,

It can be smooth and relaxing.

I can just look out the window,

Just me and my thoughts,

A train of thought.

A thought that leads to writing.

Writing that can lead to infinite possibilities.
