The sun begins to set
As I set out on my journey
I bristle with high hope

Soon after, my hope begins to ebb
As the sun finally disappears
Leaving me to stutter and falter on my way

Laggards waived me as they sped past me
My destination begins to look forlorn
I wondered if I was ever going to make it

Suddenly, the sun begins to rise
As I proceed steadily
My destination seem in sight
As it continues to look real
I saw those who waived me
Some injured, few dead, others waiting
Alas, there was my destination!
