Thoughts on rails

Sadness engages
even the careful.
Happiness ensnares
even the unawares.
Fair. Unfair.
The train of argument goes
through the tunnels of self-doubt
and the straining light of epiphany.
Destination unknown.
Stops are many.
Some get down.
And some remain.

Loved this one. Reminds me of Aleph, Paulo Coelho.
Esp these lines:
"The train of argument goes
through the tunnels of self-doubt
and the straining light of epiphany. "

Awesome visualization of settling arguments, slowly, over a journey full of ups and downs. :)

@Sindhura

Thank you. But there isn't a button like that. You have to go through the dark tunnel of the poem and feel its walls.

@ Usha

:)

@Surbhi
