THE ONE-WAY STREET


Life is a one-way street.
being born
dying.
~
Moving through schools
easily
with difficulty
passing or failing.

Moving through careers
in for the long haul
flitting from job to job
succeeding or failing.
~
Always forward – you can’t go back.
~
On the homefront
in for the long haul
stay in one place
ownership.

On the move literally
restlessness
itchy feet
taking your home with you
an overladen snail.
~
Always forward – you can’t go back.
~
Friendships for life
or days, months, years
in continuity
or picked up after time-gaps
enduring through troubles
or dropped at breaking point.

Partnerships – marital and business
for the duration.
How long is that?
days, months, years
in continuity
or picked up after time-gaps
enduring through troubles
or dropped at breaking point.
~
Always forward – you can’t go back.
~
Relationships always lop-sided
phone calls  texts  emails
one-way down IT street
fitting in others’ schedules
losing life-time on-hold in case
wasting never regained hours
as age manhandles us on.
~
Always forward – you can’t go back.
It’s a one-way street.
