When the steeds prevailed;
Lugging life to the known and unknown;
Conversation with the wind and rapidity revealed!
Many a lover flew with the wind;
Time changes and brings in new,
They saw the steam from the gargantuan machine,
Never had a living snail raced;
Wafting the breeze from both side,
The railroads crossed all state!
Defining and re-defining mobility;
Crisscrossing life and humanity;
The engine arrived!
From the gold diggers to the slaves in the continents,
From sub-Sahara to the Himalayan plateau;
Life resonated at the thrill of speed!
The train roared on its beat;
The silent rail roads like separated lovers;
Travel along, never to meet!
Today when I decide to board,
This symbol of hope;
And I look back in time,
I am intercepted;
Something plays with my mind;
Millions of lives inside its belly,
Destination dwarfed, always a rally;
Time has changed,
It always is!
The newer breed and defying speed;
Crossing landmasses and crossing seas,
Changing landscape in blinking eye;
Not a lie!!!
