Driving in the Dark

I keep having this dream where I'm driving in the total darkness. I was discussing this with a friend, and she said that it had to mean something. Of course, I Googled it and found out that it meant that I am fearful of the future and what it holds.  The whole experience gave me an idea for the following poem.

Driving in the Dark 

Driving through the darkness,
No headlights to aid me,
I head toward the unknown.
My eyes are wide open,
But only a black sheet
Drapes my view.
I have no clue where I am steering
In this abyss that stands before me.
Uncertainty slams this windshield.
Am I moving toward destiny or disaster,
Fate or failure?
I must keep driving
To discover the answer.

  1. Such strong images.
    "But only a black sheet
    Drapes my view."
    You do keep driving. There is hope.
