A Ride Down Town

Sitting in a car, starring out the window...
The suddenly I realized I was starring at the reality of life
Moving past many bright lights of the city to deep dark paths of the ghetto
Passed huge crowds then couples walking in hand
The man walking in silence and the girl starring at traffic
From car showrooms to lifeless mechanic shops

Then I deliberated,
The bright lights, times of joy
The dark paths, times of sorrow
The crowds, friends sharing one’s joy
The couple, love...
The lonely, a call for God
The car show rooms, new beginnings
And the lifeless workshops, stages of reconciliation and transformation

Finally the car pulled up
And there was home, where it all ended
Portraying the end of life and heaven to rest in.
A simple Ride Down Town.
