Dead Ahead

Dead Ahead

written by: Steve Green



There comes a point
in this trip that seems endless
deep into
the indifferent horizon
that you have to trust
the power of motion
to pierce the inertia
determined to hinder us
from our current destination..

If we do survive
and somehow manage to arrive
don’t you dare look back
deep into the abyss
of over analysis..

No need for pointless remembrance..

All that post trip bullshit
that sticks to our shoes
and leaves behind
the clinging accumulation
retrospective residue
which only serves to slow us down
like a persistent drag demon
as we set out to embark
on our final journey
