Same Road

How crazy it is to think we’ve driven the same road

Seen the same freeway overpasses through the windshield

The same graffiti written across the cement walls

Endured the heavy traffic as we attempted to make a simple lane change

Do you also grit your teeth?

Do you drown out the outside world with the volume all the way up?

Does your mind often go adrift as your body sets to autopilot for a frequent destination?

I wonder if I’ve ever passed you by

Worse, if my stubborn will to get where I was going lead me to cut you off

Perhaps one day I’ll glance out my window

To catch a glimpse of you steering your ship.

And though our journeys may differ and lead to different paths,

mine will have one more story to tell.
