Will They Ever Know

careening down the tracks

life in the rear view mirror

and desperate to get it back

riding alongside friend and foe

into the darkness deep

into what tragedy I do not know

kings are killed, capitals conquered

and the Christ was crucified

yet somehow, I’m still alive

how I’ve survived sin and insanity

is a miracle

or my life is a slow sting of a thousand scorpions

the sun goes down, and I wonder

was it worth it

will I ever know
