ACCELERATE

Where are the brakes?

nothing to hold on to
no hope of a break
pick up the pace
quicken the rush
hasten my step

Where are the brakes?

sinking fast at hasty pace
is there a chance of
cartoons escape hatch
go faster—speed up
what brought me here

Where are the brakes?

is there a ripcord
a trapdoor—a key
to another direction
life is taking me
to change the future

Where are the brakes?

needing to escape
see the future turn
knowing what I need
windows open wide
to turn back the tide

There is so much at stake…
