When was the last time you took a drive?
Just sat in the car, unclutched all your thoughts and accelerated far away from whatever is holding you back or towards whatever you want
The headlights come on, clearing your mind and the path ahead, showing you where you’re heading
The seat belt clicks you back into reality but as you pull out of the garage, you feel unfettered, free
Is it necessary to know where you’re going? Sometimes
Will you always know where you’ll end up? No
But does it matter?
The blinking street lights zip past like orderly, well behaved fireflies
Suddenly there is no traffic and you are left soldiering alone, against the inky black sky
Enjoying the solitude, enjoying the nothingness, enveloped in nothing but a nippy breeze
As you stick your hand out to tame the wind and try to grab fistfuls of it, your hand keeps flailing around, almost merry
And it’s a loss of control that feels amazing
Your hair, pulled away from your face is the only thing looking back, taking notes
While you blaze ahead, liberated, anxieties annihilated
Feeling like you’re infinite
