The light at the start of the tunnel



The light at the start of the tunnel

Appended version

Peering through a spy-glass darkly
Into imperfect reality
Thereís none so blind that will not see
What will be, they say, will be

There may be dragons in there waiting
With their firey breath full bated
Their gnashing teeth, sharp, serated
And hunger that is never sated

But Que Sera Sera my friend
Who knows where that tunnel ends
For down that railway track you send
The future you, down straight and bend.

There is no option to remain
Time and tideís held back in vain
Sunrise, sunset, Sunrise again
Seven ages - seven brains

So into the future you must go
Ee-i-ee-i-ee-i-oh,
Bravely in to tommorow
Thatís the way the whistle blows
For Thomas, Ivor and Casey Jones

John, I think your talents in poetry are better than you let us believe!
That is really good....did it take you a long while to think it up?
I ask, because some days, nothing at all comes into my mind and then other days, lots of poetic thoughts come flooding into my brain.
I have never given poetry a second thought until I joined the forums, but I am really enjoying it now.
Thank you for sharing that lovely poem.

Thank you, Snowy. But you are too modest yourself.

I have to admit that I did do a bit of song writing as a lad. And reading helps with the references - and the rhymes.
