Driven

by Shelly Wiseberg

Exploring I wandered around for years
In odds and ends not knowing
What to do with myself
Unchartered territory just waiting
For me to discover
Undecided in which way to go
Open road to freedom
Implusive escape driven by extremes
In nature erratic in behavior
In the spur of the moment
Running away from the mundane
Routine of existence a change of pace
From everyday rat race
Always in a hurry to get ahead
On the highway of life searching
For a new scenic route
Through small towns and quaint shops
Worth exploring along side streets
With windows rolled down
Music blasting out loud
Enjoying the view of the countryside
With a smile on my face
Feeling free from the city lights
Of shades drawn in boredom
