It was filled with wealth
The speeding train rushed back to town
Dark clouds filled the air

Shady looking outlaws appeared ahead
Their loaded guns showed they meant business
Squealing brakes pierced the air

Robbers stormed through the train
The men looted what they pleased
Silhouettes raced to the sunset

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe

I like the beggining but in the 2nd paragraph it starts to loose you. i still like it though!
