Colliding with Yourself

A journey gone horribly awry
On the concrete highways and byways
Of today’s most direct route generation
Detoured to the lane of humdrum dawdle
Gradual drift from the master plan
A journey gone horribly awry
Or has it?
On a fatal collision course with self
The soul in touch with the purpose of living
Or the body driving a mere existence
Only one can survive
A journey of new possibility
Potholes redirecting your traffic
Slowing the race of your breath
Opportunity to absorb the scenery
Stop or pause enough to connect
Build a road surfaced and wound to your choosing
Now a journey that you direct
