Car Ride (Leave Me Not) .
As the journey took its course,
by Susan Lawino
I felt free with carefree spirit.
Escaping my thoughts, pain, hurt and anger,
Escaping my unrealised dreams and hopes,
Escaping my life.
My chest was heavy,
A knot clung to my heart,
Like leeches to a wet skin.
I wondered if everything had journeyed along with me?
Or if it was just the wind in my face?
