I took my brain for a test drive–
Revved her up to check her speed,
tested her powerful engine,
then slamming the brakes to a stop,
I shifted into neutral so I could
idle, become steadfast at the helm.
The motor speedway wasn’t far;
It followed the path, memory lane.
Drivewise, she met expectations;
Neutral was fueled by love and
where I recharged by reading.
Driving forward, I feel centered,
enjoying the next journey in my life.
