Driving home in the dark through blinding rain
Hassles at the office plaguing my brain
Longing to escape life in the fast lane

Motorists are cussing with words profane
From shouting back, I struggle to refrain
Car mirror shows my forehead’s bulging vein

Sense of sanity I try to maintain
My heart races and I’m feeling chest pain
What is the point I try to ascertain

Thoughts of ending it I now entertain
To repel these notions I have to strain
Remembering Jesus never complained

    How beautifully you have exposed the curses of modern living. I was worried about the mad way of driving their motorcycles here in India, but this appears to be a global problem and highlighting in such a thrilling way is wonderful. Congrats, for your wonderful win in Carolyn's March Madness. A well deserving wins my friend. Love and best wishes...Ravindra...Diane Locksley
