You can be anyone on a train

by You Have My Word

You can be anyone on a train.
Going some or other way –
you’re all the same.
No one knows your name.

You can be anyone on a train.
Familiar faces from photo frames
finding comfort in blurry, motion-terrain.
There’s no need to tell your story (no shame).

You can be anyone on a train.
You can have any smile, any eyes, any face.
Different lives and different pains.
Still, no one knows your name.

You can be anyone on a train.
A hop-on, hop-off game.
You can be temporarily insane –
no judgment, no laughter, no blame.

You can be anyone on a train.
Wondering if you’ll be late.
Today I’m a writer in a cage – pen to page.
Strange things happen when no one knows your name.
