I write spec scripts in my spare time, I hope one day I have my own TV show or even a movie. Also a poet.

To The Next Station, where things appear to be more positive

Trying to survive with lack of money towards payday, with the cost of living going up all the time, will you make it to the next station.

Will we make it over that stretch?
Take each day as it comes,
one day over is a day less,
a stepping stone towards payday,
like a heavy steam engine,
puffing and chuffing over a rickety old wooden viaduct,
wheel turn by wheel turn, the bridge begins to creak,
will we make it across safely?
Or will we plunge to our deaths?
On the sharp rocks that’s down blow,
what choice do we have?
I keep my hand upon the throttle
and my eyes upon the rails,
I’m not a gambling man,
I’m willing to throw the dice,
and steam onwards with great care,
towards the other side,
where life seems to look brighter,
where money is waiting at the next station.
