so i drive

away from the

flashing lights and

my parents' advice

towards lonely nights.


so i speed up

when nostalgia sinks in.

red, yellow, green

i'm the new street queen.


so i don't stop

when the sirens

blare and my vision

begins to blur

it's a split decision.


underage drinking

and driving at 17

a broken tail light blinking

a death no one had foreseen.


so i drive

to be free from

the lies and hate.

so i drive

to be free from

my insecurities and regret.

so i drive

to be free from

it all.
