A Free Thought


A free thought is what I'm about to write.

This is not going to be a poem

Why you can't own an RV, this

Is rather

A lighter poem of deepened awakenings

When we are faced with the inevitable

And find the mortal thoughts

That pass our brains,

In Amtrak trains

We ride without fare

And without tickets.

The conductor comes, and we are


But rather a free thought

Is much possessed with the rain

Of Awakenings; when we shuffle off

This mortal coil, must give us pause-

Because we are such stuff as dreams are made on,

And our larger life is bounded by a sleep. . .

But to keep track of our Apple purchases, oh!

That is the cause...

Because to pause is never the proper answer.

I enjoyed this thought provoking poem and I believe that without freedom of thought wisdom would not exist. Great writing.
