Safety

 

Am I out of my mind?

Maybe a little bit. 

I know this isnŐt the end,

not this early.

 

The sun sets on the winding road,

as I speed past an all black Chevy.

The finish line nearing our street cars,

I try to drift past another car,

 

but this time my tires skid too hard.

Ultimately, sending me flying into the oncoming traffic,

I nearly dodge all of the motorists,

only to spot red and blue lights heading towards me.

 

I jump the median,

barely making it past the officer.

My heart beats harder with every breath,

as I see the finish line within my grasp.
