Train ride

This post was written in 5 minutes.
Last weekend we were at a Christmas fair. Suddenly I heard something behind me and saw a little train, populated with a few children passing by. I took a picture, a story of a child dreaming of riding a real train. This made me think of life and this poem was born. A pity I can't add the picture.

Life often resembles
a ride on the train
stations go by
in repeating refrain

And we, while dreaming
of grand destinations, remain
in the train at the fair
going round yet again
