Steering the Wheel


Peddling in the stray direction,
wondering who made the map.
A constellation of ambition,
an oddity of fate or a trap.

Two cents of hope on the dashboard,
skim through the grounds on a test drive.
Finding fireflies on the long ride,
rewrite the levels of uncertainty and thrive.

Tonight I am lurking in the back seat,
to resist the inertia in my bones and uncover.
Sing to myself in the quiet,
turn on the rear lights for an unsettled maneuver.

This was an escape to the let out the anxieties and distressed of my mind.

It signifies the feelings that one goes through while undertaking a new path or an opportunity.
