IN A HURRY

In a hurry.

Cars race by.

Colorful streaks of light.

Can’t see the drivers.

Only the lights.

Moving quickly.

Racing somewhere.

But where?

Where the grass is greener.

People are happier.

The food tastes better.

Or not.

GREEN LIGHT

GREEN LIGHT

The light is green.

Take a road trip.

To nowhere.

To everywhere.

Leave it all behind.

Open your mind.

Open your heart.

To the possibilities.

To new places.

To new people.

Leave it all behind.

The light is green.

Go for it.

THE ROAD TO NOWHERE

What will it feel like

at the end?

On your last road,

at your last stop.

No more road signs.

No more signals.

Only dead silence.

No people.

No lights.

No sounds.

Memories flitting by.

Old smells.

Then darkness.

No!

I want to go out

with a bang!

A parade.

A marching band,

with music and laughter.

Let’s wait for the parade.

I can hear it in the distance.

TRAPPED IN WONDERLAND

Too many people on the streets.

Cars honking their horns.

People shoving each other.

When did life become so hectic?

Why is everyone in a hurry?

Where are they all going?

They become a blur to me.

One shoving mass of humanity.

Hurrying to their end.

No individuality.

No caring.

No manners.

Only a need

to get somewhere fast.

Trapped in their

Alice of Wonderland—

in a hurry to go nowhere.
