Reviewed my life the other day;
Unwound myself, rewound my thoughts,
And relived again—fast forward,
Like silent Charlie Chaplin movie,
Pushing a cart uphill past rail tracks,
While the train steams along closer.
Charlie, playing me, nears top then slips,
And rolls down over the rail road,
Just missing the chugging engine.
I’ve repeated that pointless effort,
So many times in my life across
Risky paths that looked deceptively safe.
