Don't we all wonder, remotely
- in ways we cannot even fully understand -
'What's this all about? '
Age has invaded our mind
and hearts.
Onward we march.
Life has invaded our spirits
and souls.
As onward we march.
The future flows right on past
behind us.
And yet onward we march.
Living is a passing glance
a long goodbye.
Onward we march.
Where we are bound
no eye has seen
no tongue can tell
no mind does fathom.
Still onward we march.
On the trail of time lost
we take the exit to eternity.
Ever onward we march.
Do we wonder
what a wonder it is
that we're marching into?
We should.
We shall.
We are.
Through it all, onward we march.

    Do we wonder
    What a wonder is....
    Just love the positive flow in your words. How we just have to take what is thrown at us and keep on marching.

    Thought provoking poem. True, it is bit nebulous. Yet, let us march forward knowing that we all have a destiny at the end. Wonderful thinking. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    We march onwards, braving all obstacles on our way, never pausing and never looking back on the trail of time until we merge in eternity! ! Beautiful write! ! (Report) Reply

    Marching onward and wondering why-but ours is not to reason why-excellent poem, it's one of those that
    start me thinking. (Report) Reply

    I guess we should look for the one that reads-NO EXIT.A vivid, somewhat startling telling of
    our scramble through life's jungle-truthful to the end-a10 (Report) Reply
