Escape To Rescue - Poem by william upton

I ran so hard and so fast and created distance
Between you and me.
100 miles an hour
Everyday,
Every night.
Maybe to escape,
Maybe to show you I was good enough
To do this without your help.
I navigated hairpin curves without slowing down
Until there was nothing left to see
In the rearview mirror.
You threw up your roadblock system-
Your 'lifeway' patrol
To stop me in my tracks
Before I drove off the rails.
You had to lasso me.
You had to get me in your headlock.
Although I was a wild horse,
I was your wild horse-
One that you must have thought was worth saving.
You pulled me even
And narrowed the problem I had created-
The distance...
Between you and me.
