Highway Of Life - Poem by Slava Olchevski

From the moment you are born you are totally unaware
That you are driving on a highway of life, nobody knows where

On a highway of life there is no sign
To show who's responsible for its design

There are only two rules, that I enforce
You cannot stop, you cannot drive in reverse

Drinking and driving make your speed to increase
On the highway of life there is no police

Driving fast is fun and all
You shall never be late to your own funeral

I may have to correct what I said before
You are not a driver and therefore

As a passenger you have even less control
Less desire and insensitive to achieve my goal

To achieve first goal is to become aware
That the highway of life is a road to nowhere

A question like this would often arise
If I achieved the goal, where is my prize?

The goals are fuzzy, the end's not in sight
For as long as you can just enjoy the ride!

The next step is even more crazy
You have to rip the cord and make an exit

If you did well your homework
Accept my congratulations, I will stop the clock

You can go back, you can have some rest
Time no longer exist… You have passed the test!

    However, life is a two ways lane, you could have the chance of driving the wrong direction..It could be until you find out....the hard and painful ways, the way I did, so there is no choice, but to keep going ahead any possible way...Well penned,10+++, keep it up, nevertheless, you are heading the right direction...God Bless You! Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year, Love and Peace... (Report) Reply
