I have a Drive…

IMG_4227I have a drive

It’s like a racing car

Hurtling into the night

Intoxicated, high

On Life.

 

I have a wall

It’s made of doubts

Low self-esteem

The anguish of

disappointment

And bad habits.

 

I have a drive

It’s got a healthy appetite

It’s wild

It’s sweet

It’s ruthlessly determined

To reach desired outcomes.

 

I have a wall

It’s made of stone so hard

It can survive

Even being rammed

By the racing car

 

I have a drive

And if I let it

It could take me up

To the sky. High.

But when it stopped,

The racing car starts

Pushing, screeching,

The rubber burning,

Overdoing.

 

I have a wall

That stops me in my tracks

Making possible

Into hard work

It feeds from old stories

Like an ivy

Suffocating a big oak.

 

I have a drive

But if it stopped

It’s forcing

What my little mind

Decided was worth

Pursuing.

Even when 

It runs on empty.

 

I have a wall

That comes down

Sometimes

When I feel whole.

My racing car takes off

High

Up, up, up, up, up

To the sky.

 

I have a drive…
