The gas tank is full
Only me in this car
Driving 365 miles down the road
Have I ever driven this far?
Mountains slowly moving from the windshield to the rear view mirror
Wildflowers dancing in the breeze
So many “out-of-state’ers” on the road with me
Leaving behind a unique circumstance
The family I grew up with all together
No outsiders, spouses, children
Just a lot of beautiful reminders
Of where I have been
What filled my heart as I was growing up.
Driving toward my grown up life
With a renewed sense
Everything, I, am alright.
It feels so good to know
On each end of this road
I have family who loves me so
And are waiting, wanting me to
Arrive with fewer thoughts taking over my mind.
As each new song beats on
Their words and tune a perfect blend
With the scenery, with the moment
Giving me great company on this
My longest yet
Solo road trip.
