Midnight Train


Just a city boy.
Born and rased in South Florida.
Once lost trying to find meaning in an empty life.
A life of just going with the flow...
Never really knowing if his foot steps
are walking the correct path.
On one very spontaneous day...
Guess what he did...
He took the midnight train going anywhere.
And when he arrived to his destination, he was lost.
But this time in a good way.
The break from the normality of his previous day to day
life filled the empty spaces with a feeling he’s never
on this level before.
Excitement.
Excitement that quickly transformed into curiosity.
Curiosity that motivated him to explore his new surroundings.
And what he found was meaning.
And learned that there is no correct
path.
He learned that the train represented himself.
And the the tracks represented the journey.
Because meaning lies within the journey.
