Journey I and II

A journey that's made for the last time
Is poignant with thoughts of time past
Of people of moments of pictures
Sad to think this time is the last

No background, no substance, no meaning
Quick sketches with a broad brush

A journey that's made in the middle
Is tedium where the views are unseen
To get on, to pass by, to ignore
Insignificance born of routine

A journey that's made in the end
Is a trial borne day after day
To accept, to assist, to politely endure
Wasting one's interest away

His face it surely smiled
For the very next day he'd be at home
With his loving wife and child
